    I will be graduating in spring 2020 and will begin studying for the CPA exams in the summer. I know that it takes around 8 weeks minimum for them to process transcripts in order to sit for the exams. Would I be able to submit my transcripts early or do I need to finish all my classes first?



    Being you need to have your degree to sit for CPA exam, you must wait til it's posted before ordering your transcripts.


    I know things vary by state, but in Texas you can get your department chair to write a letter to the State Board and be eligible to sit the exam during your last semester. Check with your department/state board and see if this is an option if you want to get started early. Also, if you already have the credit hours here, you don't have to have a Master's degree – only the undergrad degree, the required classes and credit hours. Again, it might be very different in California. I graduated in December 2018 and was able to request my NTS by early January. Official transcripts were available online about three days after the end of the semester. I sent them in and it didn't take very long for them to process my application.

    I've found an anomaly in the Space-Time Continuum. NASBA is in the 19th century and uses slide rules to score the exam, and then sends the scores by Pony Express to the State Boards. That's why it takes so long for them to release scores.
