    Also curious on the current processing time as I had my application approved by the board on 9/28 but I still don't see my name on the online verification tool.

    Post up the rest of your scores, interested to see how you did after a 98 on FAR, impressive.
    You're not even a month out, I think you have a ways to go yet but hopefully soon.

    Hi all – is there a more efficient way to get status updates from Albany? I sent in all my information about 6 weeks ago, sent a follow-up email to make sure they got everything, and have not heard back. All I am really looking to do is confirm is that they received all my forms to avoid unnecessary delays. My understanding is they will not provide updates over the phone either. Any advice is appreciated.

    If you are simply looking to see if they got your forms, call the number on the website for customer service, press the “how to apply for an application” option, wait for the system to say it's speech and then keep pressing until you got the “say your profession”, then you said accounting, and then you will be transfer to unit 3, and then more speech, wait for the line to be pick up and explain to the customer representative NICELY that you are simply looking to confirm if your forms were there. They will be able to give you an answer.

    It will take every form 2 weeks after arrival at Albany to be in the system.

    And once it's in the system it will take up to 4 weeks for them to be reviewed by the board. (Which at that time the board will decided if you deserve a license).

    Customer service cannot confirm if they get your form. They can only confirm if they received a particular form. There's a possibility that you think you don't need a form, then you were notified that you do.

    Happened to me.

    But if you did EVERY FORM. Then they will be able to give you an answer.

    You should also try to send the board another email. Like every week. They track emails directly to your profile. Your new email will likely prompt them to look at your profile and response to you faster. (Guessing)

    It took me about 6 weeks since I sent my files and finally getting the board approval. Now waiting to see my name online, which will probably take another month or so. My experience was pretty smooth and all the questions were answered if you call the customer service line nicely.

    Btw, just curious, does anyone know what the actual size of the New York State CPA certificate is? Planning to hang my certificate once I get it haha.

    Has anyone received their license in December and have a little insight into the current wait times? I sent my application in about 30 days ago and got an email response from office of professions saying my application was forwarded to the board and they would reach out to me via email if anything is missing.

    Is there any way to see what the date is on the applications the board is currently reviewing? I am also unsure if this is first document review or the final one prior to approval. I'm worried about my education credits as I had 158 credits when I sent transcripts to the office of professions and a few classes being disallowed would but me below the 150 limit.

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated, the waiting and licensing process is nerve wreaking..

    Hi all – wanted to provide a complete update on my timeline to getting licensed (it's official!). I have always found this thread to be particularly useful so figured I would pay it forward.

    – 9/24 – Application sent via online portal

    – 9/25 – Transcripts from 4 separate universities sent

    – 9/30 – Form 4B sent

    – 11/10 – Approved by board

    – 12/7 – Received email from NYSED indicating my status/expected timeline going forward (FYI – I had sent two previous inquiry emails before this without a response). Within this note they stated my 11/10 approval date above.

    12/30 – Date of licensure

    1/2 – License received in mail (although I can't say exactly when this was received as I don't check my mailbox often, but the turnaround was quick to receipt)

    Thanks for sharing the update.
    Nice to see they are still getting these licenses processed during COVID.
    The timeline doesn't even seem that far off compared with prior years either.

    I recently was issued my license number so I figured I would share my timeline as i know how frustrating it can be waiting and getting close to no updates.

    11/11/2020:

    Ordered transcripts to be sent to NYS dept. of education. I had to to this because I sat with 120 credits and got the other 30 while I was sitting for exams.

    11/13/2020: Day 1

    Submitted my NYS application online and remitted payment.

    12/14/2020: Day 31

    My file was reviewed by the office of professions for completeness and sent to the board. Note: I emailed twice for updates. OPUNIT3@nysed.gov is the best way to contact the office that does this review. I used the online contact option first and received a response from them weeks after I emailed this address.

    01/07/2021: Day 55

    The board of directors approved my application. I again emailed a couple times for updates. It is worth noting that this is a different department, OPUNIT3 will not be able to help you while the file is in this office. The email for this department is cpabd@nysed.gov. You will get an auto reply, but then eventually someone in the office will answer your email.

    01/11/2021: Day 59

    The office of professions received my application from the board, and the final review by them was complete. Application sent to processing queue. I sent one more email to the OPUNIT3 address a couple weeks after this asking nicely for the date of application they were currently working on. The date I asked for was the queue entrance date since they are done first come first serve.

    01/26/2021: Day 74

    License number is posted online. It was interesting to see all the names pop up on the verification tool while I waited. Trick is to find the last issued license number then go back and add 1. Eventually you see yours issued.

    The most important thing to remember when emailing is to be as nice as possible. There are people on the other side of the address and have a job to do, which can at times be delayed with a variety of things happening. Make sure to include your name, DOB, and last 4 of your SSN in every request email to make their life easier, that way they don't have to hunt.

    I haven't gotten my license in the mail yet, but I am happy to know i am officially licensed and a CPA. The piece of paper can take as long as it needs to at this point.

    Just thought I'd drop in a set of my own data and also add-in the measurements of the parchment (it's 8.5 inches X 11 inches) for anyone else who wants to know

    Found out I passed my last exam on 10/08/20, applied online by 10/09/20 with all of my information EXCEPT Form 4B which needed to come from an old supervisor.

    They didn't get that submitted until 11/29/20, my file was considered complete on 12/29/20, and my official application date was given to me of 12/31/20.

    In late January 2021 – upon a few weekly repeat calls to the department over there, I found out my application was given initial approval and sent along to the processing queue for the board to review and approve which was granted on 02/09/21.

    Was told at that point it takes 4-6 weeks processing time to run a background check as a final piece as well as getting the staff to post up an active license number online.

    Note that after that happens OPUnit3 will tell you it can take up to 2 weeks after getting that active license number posted up to get your actual license documents in the mail – and that due to Covid-19, it could take longer.

    My Active License number got posted on 03/09/21, right along their timelines…and then actually got my parchment – yesterday, which was a pleasant surprise.

    Moral of the story as others have posted in here, you can call and be polite (always) as the staff will help you with regards to getting a sense of timing of how long this takes…and also dear god – get aligned with whatever supervisors you have on that Form 4B being sent along. My old one sat on it and I had to have weekly follow-up emails and a couple of phone calls to see it through and it cost me 2 months of waiting and probably an interview or 2 in the past couple of months because of annoying hiring managers and competition in the market for people having an active license vs. waiting for processing of one.

    Total time from application for licensure to actively licensed: 5 months.

    After 15 years of putting this off, I finally put in some focus and passed the last part of the exam December 15th. I submitting the application online when I shouldn't have though. If you are Grandfathered in to pre 2009 rules (yes I applied back then so I don't need 150hrs), you need to submit the application by mail and have it notarized.

    I mailed in December 20th, and application in by December 22nd.

    January 12th after I emailed they said it was comped.

    January 30th it was still in comped.

    February 15th I was informed it passed comped February 5th and it was to go to the board by March 5th. It can take up to 6 weeks after then.

    March 12th was told it was approved by the board and going through opunit3.

    Well, they are really upholding their 12 to 16 weeks estimate. Mine approving date was 17th from board, and received update from OPUNIT3 that my file is not in queue yet, take 4 weeks from approving date to get me in the queue and another 4 to 6 weeks to process.

    Congrats Yankee!!!
    I wish I had mailed in the application with a check by August 1, 2009 so I would have been grandfathered in.
    Ended up having to wait out the 15 year clock.

    But either way, here we are now!!!
    So good to be done!

    That would be 142 days since my application date.
