I got licensed a lot quicker than I expected. I'm not sure if it's because I was grandfathered in with the 120 credits that the approval process is quicker. I wanted to share my timeline in case anyone was in a similar spot.
Score Released on last passing part: 3/08/19
Firm mailed out 4B form: 3/09/19
I Mailed application for License (Form 1): 3/10/19
License # Posted on NYS Website: 4/12/19
Its official!April 26, 2019 at 12:34 pm #2355216
I am grandfathered in under the 120 hour rule. I was told my application with sent to the Board on 3/26 and that it was in the “Bureau of Comparative Education” as of two days ago. Does anyone have any experience with that? I was told it's standard and that every application goes through it, regardless of which route to application you go (ie 120 v 150 etc). Any insight is appreciated! Thanks to all and congrats to all 🙂April 26, 2019 at 12:57 pm #2355312
So you sent in your original application with a check prior to August 1, 2009?
I have never heard the term “Bureau of Comparative Education” before but I would not worry about it.
I did not send in my application by August 1, 2009 so I ended up using the 15 year pathway which did work out fine, just took about 20 weeks to finally be approved because of the 2017 backlog.April 26, 2019 at 1:06 pm #2355354
Yes, I sent in my original application before 8/1/09 and was approved to take the exam at that point. Life got in the way and I finally was able to pass all 4 exams within the 18 mos window. I had a couple delays in getting all my paperwork in but now just waiting and hoping. I was thinking that if NASBA approved me to sit for the exam, wouldn't that same education float with NYSED? (And float is a facetious term, I went to a great school with an accredited business program and got an accounting degree and made sure I met all the requirements laid out for licensure). Just hoping it's nothing and normal and that I can expect my license sooner rather than later 🙂April 26, 2019 at 1:10 pm #2355357
You can't count on NASBA to always forward the education along.
I'd give it another couple weeks and then check back in with NYS to make sure everything is in order.
It might just be a matter of reviewing your education/transcripts because they are so old, they might need to cross reference historical course codes with current and things of that nature.
I wouldn't worry about it yet, but be sure to do your due diligence and follow up every couple weeks. They are horrible about contacting you to let you know something is missing.May 6, 2019 at 9:14 am #2380557
I spoke to the NYS Office of the Professions today to inquire about my pending application & was told that they are currently reviewing applications that were placed in the queue as of April 26th and that I got on the queue on May 1st. They said if everything is in order that I should know if I was approved in a few weeks (2-3 weeks).
They did tell me that they will most likely not notify me if I do get approved, so I should periodically check their online verification page to see if my name shows up. Best of luck to all potential NYS CPA's!May 14, 2019 at 7:31 pm #2402688
I sent out my applications in 3/29/2019. My license was registered in 5/10/2019. It’s a little over 5 weeks. Hope it helps.May 15, 2019 at 8:39 am #2403357
Nice!! thanks for the update.
It seems NYS has finally cleared the large backlog, or perhaps was able to replace the staff that left.
5 weeks seems much for reasonable than the 16-20 we had to deal with in the past couple years.June 18, 2019 at 5:45 am #2484795
Is there any update on the timeline recently? I mailed out my application on 05/03 and received an email in 05/27 telling me that I am missing one transcript and work experience requirement is satisfied. I asked my college to send my transcript right away. I sent out an email for inquiry in 06/06 but haven’t got anything back yet.June 20, 2019 at 5:10 pm #2495712
I likewise submitted in May (everything was in probably around May 13) and have since been waiting. After seeing that Yxh8730 got an email about missing materials, I realized I had just been assuming they receive everything and then post your name at some point. Assuming all my materials were in, should I have received an email confirmation from them? Thank you.June 21, 2019 at 5:25 am #2496651
I dont think they will send you confirmation for receiving documents. I called them on 6/18 and I was told that they wont send me any email even they approve my application. They will only contact me if there is anything missing. They just told me my transcript is received and is not yet reviewed. Once they done reviewing the transcrip, they will pass it to processing unit. I think you should call them to make sure they have received everything and ask them for timeline. They also tell me my original date wil be keep so I dont need to get on the line again. Our timeline should be closed. Please let me know if there is progess for your application. Good luck!
