AICPA Seeks Feedback on Proposed 2024 CPA Exam Changes
  • Stakeholders invited to provide input through Sept. 30, 2022
  • New model for CPA Licensure and CPA Exam to Launch 2024

The American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) is soliciting feedback on the Exposure Draft of the new design of the Uniform CPA Examination® (CPA Exam). Developed through research and input from the profession, the Exposure Draft informs the content and scope of the CPA Exam expected to launch in January 2024. Stakeholders are asked to provide feedback through Sept. 30, 2022.

This request for stakeholder input is the next step in the AICPA and National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) joint CPA Evolution initiative, which is transforming the CPA licensure model to recognize the rapidly changing skills and competencies the accounting profession requires.

The Exposure Draft is the result of two years of research conducted through a Practice Analysis to align the CPA Exam to the CPA Evolution initiative. The Practice Analysis collected input about the work newly licensed CPAs are required to perform from various stakeholders who share an interest in preserving the strength and mission of the accounting profession.

The Exposure Draft includes the draft Uniform CPA Examination® Blueprints, which is the official document that presents content eligible for assessment on the Exam, based on the knowledge and skills required of a newly licensed CPA. 

Stakeholders are invited to share their thoughts on the Exposure Draft via email to practiceanalysis@aicpa.org by Sept. 30, 2022. All feedback will be considered when finalizing the design of the 2024 Exam.

A final report, including the final CPA Exam Blueprints, will be published in early 2023, well in advance of the expected launch of the CPA Evolution-aligned CPA Exam in January 2024.
