The wait is almost over!
If you sat for the Auditing (AUD), Financial Accounting and Reporting (FAR), or Regulation (REG) section(s) of the 2017 CPA Exam during the April/May (Q2) testing window, you can expect to receive your score on August 17, 2017. Business Environment and Concepts (BEC) will be released starting on August 22, 2017.
NASBA also notes that some boards of accountancy (i.e., the states for which NASBA doesn't report scores directly to CPA candidates) require at least one day beyond the published target release date to process and release exam scores.
Here's an updated CPA Exam testing window and score release timeline for the remainder of 2017 (as of August 15, 2017):
Also, note, the AICPA includes the disclaimer that "these dates are targets, not a guarantee."
"I have to wait all summer for my score?!!"
We understand here at Yaeger CPA Review how excruciating a score hold can be for our students.
We encourage our students to try not to dwell on the exams you have taken. There is nothing else you can do about them. Instead, we suggest you use the blackout months to focus your study efforts on the untaken parts for the Q3 testing window.
And, if you're feeling overwhelmed, we are here to help. Here's a message from Dr. Phil Yaeger. Hear his story about when he failed the exam his first try:
