@ re2pect – Congratulations! Great feeling….
Finally licensed, my timeline:
– Application (Form 1 & Form 4B) received by NASBA on 7/6
– Application sent to Board on 8/3
– License # issued 10/17
I never found out the date of approval other than someone confirming that is' being issued.
Good luck everyone, just like the exam it takes time but it eventually happensOctober 17, 2018 at 11:14 am #2026682
WOOP WOOP!!! congrats!October 17, 2018 at 1:01 pm #2026811
Hi, I am new to the thread.
How long on average can I expect from when I submit the application up until actually receiving my license?October 17, 2018 at 1:05 pm #2026817
I've been following these posts for a while now – but my first time posting!
I finally passed my final part last month! I sent in my application & work experience forms which were received last week. I emailed to confirm they have received everything needed and I was informed they are missing my education. Can anyone help tell me what I need to do? I think NASBA had all of my education information from when i first applied to take the exams. Can NASBA send that information over, or do I have to have each school fill out those education forms and send it along with my transcripts. I can't imagine it will be an easy task to get each school to do this. If NASBA is able to send this information over, how do i go about starting that process?
Thanks in advance!October 17, 2018 at 1:54 pm #2026886
I did not go through that process, but if I were you I would state with your NASBA state coordinator and ask if they can send along your education to NY.
That would seem to be the least painless method. But while you are waiting for that to happen I would also do a transcript request for each school, just to cover your bases.
The sooner you get everything to NYS, the sooner you can get licensed. Leave no stone unturned.October 18, 2018 at 8:18 am #2027528
@ Recked – Thanks man! Finally feels good to stick those letter next to my name!! Even with passing the tests, I never felt settled with this until I saw my name online. Now to research CPE requirements etc…still beats studying for the tests by a mile.
@almost-cpa – My transcripts were sent to NASBA for my approval to sit for the exam. They emailed me stating to let them know once I passed as then they would forward it to the State Board. I confirmed with them and they did so relatively quickly. I emailed them two or three times, as I was paranoid about them actually sending the transcript. Also besides my main degree, I have 5 other schools which I ‘attended' to rack up credits, and I really wanted to avoid going through all of them again (I did it already for the initial NASBA approval). I would reach out to NASBA first, but it certainly couldn't hurt to get the schools to send them in, best of luckOctober 18, 2018 at 9:09 am #2027606
@RS2018 – Congratulations! Thanks for the info. I had sent all my transcripts to NASBA before I sat for the exams as well and would love to avoid doing it again. I sent NASBA an email and hopefully they respond and can send it over quickly.. otherwise i'll just have to send them from each school again just in case! Glad to know I'm on the right track.October 18, 2018 at 10:03 am #2027645
@almost-cpa based on my experience in the past I was more efficient when actually talking on the phone to the coordinator. They weren't communicating promtly via email.October 22, 2018 at 12:46 pm #2031788
Called today again. They are on August 28th.October 22, 2018 at 1:28 pm #2031881
Soooooo close for me!!! 9/10 baby….. Hope they have a busy week! LOLOctober 23, 2018 at 10:27 am #2032778
I sent my application on 8/21/2018 and the check was cashed the next day 08/22/2018. Today (10/23/2018) I’m reading this forum and found out you can call and ask for the status of your application. As such, I decided to called and was informed that my education information was never provided by NASBA (After 8-9 weeks “SMH”). The person that I spoked to advised to re-order the transcript and sent as express mail, because NASBA takes “forever” (There goes $120 in transcripts). Anyone knows how long it takes after reaching the board? Do I go back to the 14-16 weeks once again?
Hint: Don’t trust NASBA to send your education info, call ahead or while you are taking the exams!October 23, 2018 at 10:40 am #2032799
That sucks to hear another story like this. I am afraid you will still have a substantial wait after your education is finally sent.
I'd contact NASBA and ask them to resend, and also contact your schools to request transcripts again. The more avenues you have available to attempt to accomplish your goal, the better off you will be.October 24, 2018 at 12:54 pm #2034128
Called today. Up to August 30th.October 25, 2018 at 7:05 am #2035259
Thanks for the update!October 25, 2018 at 8:39 am #2035331
What does it mean they are upto August 30? granting license, or reviewing?October 29, 2018 at 8:50 am #2039006
I called this morning, they are processing applications that were sent to the board on 9/4!
@ Green – After you submit the application and once it is “approved”, they send it to the board of accountancy for approval. Then there is another wait for the board to review it. My application was submitted and my check was cashed on July 5th, but was not sent to the board until Sept 10th. Hopefully if they get to my application next week and then its another 2 weeks to be issued the license. – from my understanding!October 29, 2018 at 10:52 am #2039123
so you're saying it takes about 2 months to submit the application to the board. and then there are about 2-3 weeks until actually getting license? I am wondering once my education is sent over to the board are there chances them not approving it? meaning is it sort of pre approved if it gets sent to the board?October 29, 2018 at 11:09 am #2039156
Well in my case, I had all of my transcripts sent directly from the schools (five of them!) the last week of June. I followed up about two weeks after July 5th, they said they had everything. Followed up another two weeks later for status, they were missing a transcript from Stony Brook. Stony Brook confirmed it was delivered but they resent it. Followed up again a few weeks later (late August) and they said they had everything. Followed up 9/13 and they said that had forwarded it to the board 9/10 and that it would be another 8-16 weeks to process by the board and then 1-2 weeks for license to be issued. From everything I have learned in this thread, you must keep on top and keep calling and following up. I also sent an email in the beginning of September and they only replied to it last week…. I would not rely on your education being sent to the board by NASBA (I sent all of my transcripts to NASBA and they were never forwarded to the state). Good luck!November 2, 2018 at 7:56 am #2043881
Called yesterday and they are on 9/10November 2, 2018 at 8:48 am #2043932
