NASBA announced that they have extended the time to sit and pass the CPA exam from 18 months to 30 months after receiving over 850 comment letters. The original proposal was an increase to 24 months. In addition, the window is based on the date scores are released and not when the candidate sat for the exam. A big caveat is that NASBA has only changed the model rule. It is now up to the 55 State Boards of Accountancy to make changes at the state level.
