CPA EXAM ELIGIBILITY = 120 CREDITS

The Uniform CPA examination is conducted by the AICPA (American Institute of Certified Professional Accountants) which is the world's largest accounting body. AICPA offers membership to all candidates who successfully clear the CPA exams.

However, given the fact that the CPA license is a professional license in the US, it is issued by one of the 55 states or territories of the United States all of which are members of NASBA (National Association of the State Boards of Accountancy).

Miles has a dedicated CPA Gameplan team comprising of CPAs who will advise regarding your CPA eligibility, selecting the Board of Accountancy (i.e., state) to which you should apply to sit for the CPA exams, and also guide you for your foreign academic credential evaluation with an appropriate evaluation agency.

Minimum education requirements for US CPA exams and license:

CPA Exams =
120 credits

Cpa Exam Eligibility = 120 Credits

CPA License =
150 credits

Few Points To Note:

  • General rule: Every year of university education in India is equivalent to 30 semester credits of US education.
  • Some state boards award credit for international professional qualifications like CA.
  • In case of international CPA candidates from India, generally 3-year commerce graduates from NAAC-A universities who have scored a First division are awarded and are qualified to take the Uniform CPA exam.

For non-eligible candidates, Miles facilitates “online” bridge courses. The 2 years diploma is from Jain (Deemed-to-be University) NAAC-A-rated Universities and can be pursued by candidates across the globe. The content is fully integrated with the CPA exam curriculum (which means no extra studies!). This diploma awards 60 credits. Click here to know more.

Why Only 2-4 exams for
US CPA/CMA certifications?

  • US professional qualifications “complement” university education – e.g., to be a CMA, CPA or CFA, a university degree is mandatory
  • Therefore, these are crisper in content and focus only on skill-gaps that are needed to be a F&A professional
  • Designed to be pursued alongside a full-time job and to facilitate the career progression for professionals
Why Only 2-4 exams for US CPA/CMA certifications ?
  • Various non-US professional qualifications tend to“substitute” university education – e.g., you can be a CA in many countries without any university education
  • Therefore, these are lengthy and also encompass what a candidate would have covered (or simultaneously covers) in a university degree

Note For International Candidates:

  • As per regulations, the uniform CPA exam taken in international locations (like India or Dubai), the exam credits lapse unless the candidate is able to get to the CAP license within 3 years of clearing the CPA exam.
  • One of the most critical requirements for international candidates is "Experience" and Miles is the only review course provider in India with licensed CPAs (including, of course, the Lead Instructor - Varun Jain, CPA) who are authorized to verify the accounting/finance experience of candidates to help them achieve their CPA license.
