1) After under graduation, check if you fulfill the 120 educational credit requirement (most of the State Boards require 120 credits as eligibility criteria to appear for the exams). In most cases, having a commerce-related degree will fetch you the 120 credits. If you’re lacking the credits, don’t need to worry – you can consider taking up bridge courses (from open universities maybe) that’ll provide you the credits. 2) Application for evaluation (Choose the State Board that suits your condition) 3) NASBA Account Creation 4) Application for the Exam 5) On clearing your exams, meeting the additional educational credits required to attain the license (in most cases they would need a total of 150 credits in total, i.e., including the 120 you had before – so it’s an additional 30 credits) + the relevant experience 6) Hooray! You’re now a CPA!
