Ontario CPA-Accredited Programs

Get a head start in the CPA PEP

CPA-Accredited Programs

The CPA profession partners with select post-secondary institutions (PSIs) to develop programs that provide exemptions from some or all of the modules in the CPA Professional Education Program (CPA PEP), depending on the level of accreditation received. There are no exemptions to the Common Final Exam (CFE).

Entering the CPA PEP

If you are a student in a CPA-Accredited Program, do not proceed with the steps outlined in Get Started. Your transcript assessment, student registration and enrolment into CPA PEP and/or the CFE will be facilitated through your program's faculty. You will be required to submit your official transcripts upon completion of the graduate component of the program. Please contact your CPA-Accredited Program faculty for more information.
