CPA PEP Schedules

CPA Ontario offers Professional Education Program (PEP) Core and Elective modules up to four times per year and Capstone modules and the Common Final Examination (CFE) up to two times per year. On this page, you can view the CPA PEP schedules and important deadlines.

The CPA PEP culminates in the Common Final Examination (CFE) and is built upon the CPA competency map (CPA Canada). For all CFE-related deadlines and dates, visit our CFE enrolment page.

Transcript assessment deadlines

To ensure enrolment in a module, a complete transcript assessment form with required documentation must be submitted to CPA Ontario by the specified deadlines below. We cannot guarantee that academic transcript assessments and student registrations received after the deadline or that are incomplete will be processed to allow the student to be enrolled in a module.

If you submit a complete application within the processing timelines, we encourage you to track the status of your application in My Portal.

Note: The transcript assessment deadlines do not apply to CPA Accredited graduates. Please contact your faculty for the deadlines.
