No candidate portal access Aug. 24-29

NASBA has scheduled a candidate portal system outage from 11 a.m. ET on Aug. 24 until 9 a.m. ET on Aug. 29 in preparation for the new CPA Exam. As a result, during that period VBOA’s candidate portal will not be available.

How will this impact you?

If you are scheduled to sit for the exam during that time:

You will need to print and/or download your notice to schedule (NTS) before the outage. Without it, you cannot test. (Login here to print your NTS now.)

If you are part of the Aug. 23 score release and want to schedule a re-exam before the systems are back online Aug. 29, keep the following in mind:
  • It is important that you wait until after 8 a.m. ET Aug. 23 to submit your request for re-exam. The VBOA receives scores at 8 a.m. ET on scheduled release days. If you submit your request before we have your scores, the request will not process.
  • We cannot expedite payment coupon requests. But to help as many candidates as possible obtain a new testing document before the outage, we plan to process re-exam requests hourly Aug. 23 and before 11 a.m. Aug. 24. If we have not received your request by this time you will have to wait until Aug. 29 to apply for re-exam.
  • If you want an NTS prior to the Aug. 24 cutoff, you must log into your candidate portal and make the required payment for the requested payment coupon as soon as it becomes available.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
