INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS

 

PRE-CERTIFICATION

The CPA profession has cancelled all April CPA PEP and CPA preparatory course examinations and the May 2020 Common Final Examination (CFE). The Capstone 2 module, which precedes the May 2020 CFE is also cancelled. The profession is dedicated to supporting students in their pursuit towards the CPA designation with the least amount of disruption as reasonably possible. Students will continue to receive updates on further details and instructions.
