The National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA), plus the AICPA and testing firm Prometric, announced an emergency period to allow people to take the CPA exam outside the normal testing window.

"In anticipation of the reopening of Prometric test centers and in response to the COVID-19 situation, NASBA, AICPA and Prometric have made the decision to invoke an emergency testing period. We understand candidates are concerned about their testing options and, therefore, we are implementing this emergency testing period to provide additional testing opportunities. As part of this procedure, the 20Q2 testing window will be extended from June 10, 2020, to June 30, 2020," said the NASBA announcement.

NASBA also reminded exam candidates that it will also be extending all Notices to Schedule expiring between April 1 and June 30 this year to Sept. 30 2020. Prometric will waive all rescheduling fees.

Prometric, which administers the exam, had previously announced the closure of all U.S. test centers until at least April 16. It is currently unknown if it will extend this further.
