    i'm getting confused now.
    they don't answer the phone and the website directs us to email for a request an extension.
    so, i emailed and received automated email reply saying,

    i know NASBA recommended all state boards to extend for NTS and credit expiring
    Should i just resend since they said email back after reviewing CBA website (which asked us to send request… what?!) ?

    Received a very strange response from Maine Board of Accountancy. I wanted credit extension for REG and all they told me was to contact PROMETRIC? Im like they only provide testing and not extend credits so I sent them a second email and ever since I haven't heard from them. This is absolutely a difficult time for me and other candidates as well

    They should just extend all the credits, it shouldn't be that hard for board to make this decision. We lost one valuable testing month, this should be a no brainer..

    I'm from CA too. I emailed them last Monday after the SIP order and it took them 2 days to come back with the same automated response that you received. I emailed renewalinfo@cba.ca.gov the second time after talking to someone on the phone asking about my credit extension. The first time I emailed examinfo

    no, i sent an email only to examinfo.
    i think i should also try renewalinfo email
    did you basically/simply say, we lost a month due to covid19 and need credit extension on your email to renewalinfo?

    @asdf yes, basically something like that. I have family that is more high-risk so I've been taking care of them and their business, as well as update this forum to see if anyone has any news, as well as update local news, AS WELL as see if there's any news on Twitter from the Board. A lot of divided attention to anticipate if CA is kind enough to just automatically extend everyone's 18 mo credit =P

    Yes, email renewalinfo, at least you'll get a nonautomated response. But then the formal letter of request will be sent to examinfo anyway so we'll see if this will be a continuation of email tag

    I had a problem with the responsiveness of the MA board of accountancy a couple of years ago with respect to my licensure. I got some mileage out of contacting the state's society of CPAs. The MA Society for CPAs has an Academic/Career Development office, and a contact there was able to liase with the board and get a response. Judge the urgency of your respective situations, but the CPA professional association may be a more responsive avenue to getting a response or clarification from the board itself.

    Good luck.

    @CPA2be I applied for an extension for my REG exam expiring 10/17/2020 three weeks ago and I've sent a follow up email once a week since. They said they are “working very hard” to process my request. I basically wrote a business memo along with a doctor's note requesting for an extension. I am in Santa Clara County and I don't think my testing centers within a 2 hr drive will open till May 3.

    I get the same automated response below. Do your exams expire between April and June? Have you seen an extension for your credit in the CBA portal?

    ————
    Thank you for contacting the California Board of Accountancy (CBA). The CBA will be working with NASBA to accommodate requests to applicants as it relates to extensions for examination-related matters.
