  • Marwan says:

    Since 2006, candidates are no longer allowed to get the certificate alone which means that in practice the two-tier system is abolished.

    where did you get this information from please ?

    i didn’t find that on the state itself or NASBA also

    • Stephanie says:

      Marwan, the information is buried somewhere in the licensing section in the Delaware state board website.

      A much better source is the site run by the Delaware Society of CPA — BeACPA.org — where they explain it clearly in the FAQ section. Just click the link and check it out. Stephanie

      I know, all these CPA exam requirements are tricky don’t they…

  • Marwan says:

    sure of course, that’s why i am late till now to find a suitable state for me

    anyway i check this site BeACPA.org but is completely different than the official one which last updated on

    http://www.dpr.delaware.gov/boards/accountancy/newcertificate.shtml

    Last Updated: Monday, 15-Mar-2010 11:15:16 EDT

  • Marwan says:

    so sorry , you were right

    http://regulations.delaware.gov/AdminCode/title24/100.shtml

    7.3 Except for those applicants submitting completed applications to sit for the Uniform Certified Public Accounting Examination prior to January 1, 2006, there shall be no new certificates issued or new applications accepted for certificates only after that date.

    i am getting crazy and upset really :S

  • Marwan says:

    By the way, Delware will obtain the 150 credit hours in 2012, but does it mean that there is no reciprocity between it and other states till the end of 2012 ?

  • Vittorio says:

    Hello,

    I have an european degree in economics and I’m struggling in understanding which state would be better for me. My current options are Delaware and Colorado.
    I have already 1.5 years experience under a US CPA, so I guess if I should consider experience or credits more. If anyone has any experience with one of these State please let me know!
    Thanks

    • Stephanie says:

      Hi Marwan,
      Yes quite possibly. This is only my opinion, but the reason why Delaware doesn’t get the reciprocity now is because the requirements considered more “relaxed” thus not fair to the candidates. When the full 150 hour requirements kick in things may change. But who knows… requirements keep changing every day, that’s the frustrating part.

      Hi Vittorio,
      Assuming your degree is a 4-year degree (i.e. 120 semester hours), then yes — either Delaware and Colorado looks good!
      Here is my view on Delaware vs Colorado:

      Delaware:

      • less requirement on accounting courses (21 semester hours vs 27 in Colorado). It’s a small difference, but with everything equal this could be an important consideration.
      • allow non-public accounting experience. Not sure where you are working right now, but for Delaware you don’t need to limit your working experience in a CPA firm, while I believe Colorado requires strictly public accounting experience. Please see the link if you aren’t sure about the difference between the two.

      Colorado — if you do working in public accounting, you have already fulfilled the 1-year working requirement, which is great.

      Hope this is helpful for your decision in picking the best state. Comments from my readers are most welcome! Stephanie

  • Vittorio says:

    I think I’ll go with Delaware then. I have 1.5 yrs of non public accounting experience in US. I have 4 years of public accounting in Italy and it’s not considered a relevant experience here. I “paid my dues”, so Delaware seems the perfect choice for me.
    Thanks for your suggestion, I did not realize that experience in Colorado was strictly in public accounting, but I may be wrong.

    • Stephanie says:

      Vittorio,

      That’s great! I am glad you made a decision. Now you can finish off the application and move on to the CPA exam preparation.

      By the way, you can find the public-accounting-only requirement in the Colorado State Board website, under the licensing section. (first question, under the subheading “experience”)

      I have now included the link in the Colorado CPA exam requirements page in this site.

      Cheers, Stephanie

  • Teena says:

    I have done my graduation in India and I have 3 yr b.com degree. Anybody know is that good enough to sit for CPA exams?
    I am so confuse about semister.
    I am sending my 3 yr marksheets for evaluation by next week so if anybody has reply pls. revert , I will be very thankful to you.

    After

    • Stephanie says:

      Hi Teena,
      From what I heard from Indian readers, 3 yr b.com is normally equivalent to an associate degree, so it makes sense that you go through Delaware.

      Just by looking at this info you are good to sit for the exam, but please make sure you can find an active US CPA in India to verify the working experience for you (you’ll need 4 years of relevant experience for associate degree). This is usually the trickiest part.

      Basically, 120 semester hours = 3 years of university work; 150 semester hours = 4 years; so 40 semester hours normally = 1 year. Does it help a little bit? Stephanie

  • Teena says:

    Hi Stephanie

    First of all thank you very much for taking time to read my question and reply and it really cleared me about hours.

    I hv 3 yr degree and I have done 8weeks of articalship under a CPA firm in India beside this I don’t have any other accounting and auditing experiance.
    Do you think is it good for me to sit for CPA exams ?
    If I pass CPA exam what will be next step for me because I don’t have CPA work experiance more then 8 weeks?
    Can you please give me reply on this.

    Thank you
    Teena

    • Stephanie says:

      Hi Teena,
      You are welcome! Well, do you foresee yourself working for a US/Canadian/Australia CPA for the next 4 years? If yes, then go ahead; if not, chances to get the CPA license is unfortunately quite slim… in my opinion at least.

      If you pass the CPA exam without the experience, it will be just that — for Delaware. i.e. you can mention in your CV that you “pass the CPA exam” but can’t say you have a “CPA qualification”.

      But you may want to check with Leslie-Anne from CPAExcel, a very kind lady from Vancouver who has helped a few of my readers. Let me know how it goes!

      Cheers, Stephanie

  • Teena says:

    Stephanie

    Again lots of thanks for yr kind help.Really yr reply helps me a lot.
    Yes my plan is to work for under any CPA if I get a job after pass my CPA exams.

    Thank you again
    Teena

  • Teena says:

    Hi Stephnie

    I hard that its not too hard to pass CPA exams but it is really hard to get a job at CPA firm though you don’t have any experiance . Is that true?
    I don’t have any experiance and I am planning to sit for CPA exam through Delaware so as per my education I have to work under any CPA atleast for another 4yrs.

    Thanks
    Teena

    • Stephanie says:

      Hi Teena, in terms of getting a job at a CPA firm, it depends on where you plan to work really.

      Let’s say if you plan to work in the US just for the Big 4, then yes, it is difficult under this economic environment.
      But if you plan to work in a high-growth region (quite possibly the developing countires) and don’t mind working in smaller CPA firms, you will get a much higher chance to get a job. In fact, for Delaware, they recognize non-public accounting field, i.e. accounting department in any corporations, or in the government or even the academia. I don’t think it is too difficult if you consider all these opportunities.

      Having said that, you’ll have to make sure you can get your experience verified by an active CPA licensee (or chartered accountant from Canada or Australia, for Delaware candidates) if you work outside of the US.

      Cheers, Stephanie

      Hope it helps! Stephanie

  • Eva says:

    Is work experience accquired outside of US valid for CPA work
    eligibility requirements ?

    • Stephanie says:

      Hi Eva,
      Yes it is ok but you’ll need to make sure your experience is supervised and/or verified by an active CPA licensee. Whether it is supervised or verified that is required will be dependent on the state you sit for the exam.
      This is quite often the most tricky part for the international candidates, because it may not be easy to find someone who is an active US CPA working outsidee US. You can check with the State Board the CPA status of any individual if you have their full name and the state where they are registered in.

      Hope it helps, Stephanie

  • Teena says:

    Hi Stephnie

    Thanks you very much.
    Yes again helped me. In my case I don’t have to think about active CPA outside US though I never worked in Account field and I have to start from scratch so it may be hard for but as you said I should consider all these firms too.(As long as I start with bit competitive salary for starting) LOL

    Thanks
    Teena

  • Eva says:

    Hello Stephanie, thank you for your response. I guess that means I can’t count on my 10 yrs of work experience outside US . I will have to start from scratch . I am residing in VA and have a bachelor in commerce with a major in Financial accounting and Auditing but its 3 yrs degree( 12+3 ) and not the reqd. (12+4). Where does this leave me? Do u think I too should choose Delaware ?
    I have signed up for your mini course and have been reading your mails. They are very informative . Appreciate all your help.
    EVA

  • Stephanie says:

    Teena, yes for many states they only require one year of experience. Not too bad!

    If you haven’t already you may want to check out my page on public accounting vs private as well.

    Cheers, Stephanie

  • Stephanie says:

    Eva, it’s great you find the mini course helpful!

    On the working experience, ah that’s too bad. For states that require only verification, you sure you can’t find a US CPA who can verify the experience for you? Someone who knows you and willing to lend a hand will do, not necessarily your boss.

    Anyway, similar to my reply to Teena, many states require only 1 year of working experience, and since you are living in the US there shouldn’t be problem getting the required experience.

    On the educational requirement, for associate degree (or 3 year degree) the only choice would be Delaware.

    Just let me know if you have further questions. cheers, Stephanie

  • Teena says:

    Hi Stephnie very good morning

    I think “thank you” is not enough the way you are helping me and solving my questions. I am so glad you are replying back for all my questions.
    I am open to start with bookkeeping job though i don’t have experience and considering all accounting jobs too.
    just yesterday night I checked about private and public accounting and that helped me too.
    I will let you know after my evaluation done.
    Again Thanks a lot for yr kind help.
    Teena

  • Stephanie says:

    Great Teena. I hope things will work smoothly for you! Stephanie

  • Teena says:

    Hi Stephnie

    Can you suggest which books or CD set I should buy for CPA exams Preparation, I am searching online,everyone says ourone is good but not making my mind which I should get one.

    Thanks

    Teena

    • Stephanie says:

      OK! So you are moving along well Teena!

  • Umer Farooq says:

    Dear Stephanie,

    Keep up the good work your guidance is making life easier for a lot of prospective International CPA canidates.

    Kindly guide me about the follwoing (with respect to international canidates)

    Which States accept work experience for the licnsure verified by an Active CPA fromoutside the US.

    Which States accept Non Public Accounting Work Experience.

    Looking forward to your guidance.

    All the best

    Umer

    • Stephanie says:

      Hi Umer,
      All questions! The states seem to be tightening up their licensing requirement in terms of whether to allow non-US cpas to verify the qualification. So I can’t answer you question with confidence right now, but I can tell you for sure that Delaware does NOT recognize non-CPA verification any more. Most do recognize the so-called “CPA equivalent” notably chartered accountants from Canada, and CA/CPA from Australia. Not too sure where you are from, but Indian CA doesn’t count unfortunately (this is one of the FAQ, in case it applies to you…)

      As for states recognizing non accounting work experience, I would say most actually do recognize it but some will need a longer period of working experience to justify that.

      I know I didn’t exactly answer your question, but maybe you can go check out the “best state for international candidates” and start from there — most international candidates pick these states for various reasons.

  • Derek Thompso n says:

    Just a word of thanks for clearing away lots of cobwebs related to the requirements for becoming a CPA! Having read and read and read again the information on the site for sitting for the exam in Maryland, I appreciate so much the clear outline that you have provided for the requirements, not just for Maryland, but other states as well. Hats off to you!

  • Uday Reddy says:

    Hi Stephanie

    My name is Uday Reddy, a chartered accountant from India working for an Indian subsidary company in New Jersey since February 2007 as Finance manager.

    I would like to do CPA course from NJ and I have a 3 years bachelor degree from an Indian University and CA qualification from Institute of Chartered Accontants of India.

    I would like to know what are the requirements from my side to do CPA course in NJ.

    As per the information from this site, it is easy to get through Delaware state but my interest is to get through in NJ.

    Your advice will be greatly helpful to me.

    Thanks
    Uday Reddy

    • Stephanie says:

      Hi Uday,
      New Jersey has a relatively strict requirement. It looks like you’ll need to get an extra degree to fulfill the licensing requirement, but please take a look at the summary here first. By the way, do you want to switch to public accounting? That’s the only reason why I think getting your license specifically in your state of residency is useful. If it’s just for credential it doesn’t matter where you get your license because in the resume you’ll just state “CPA” without mentioning of the state.

      Just wondering… would love to hear your thoughts on this.

      Just let me know if you need further guidance. Cheers, Stephanie

  • Anar says:

    Hi Stephanie,

    Thank you for providing us with helpful suggestions.
    I have a bachelor degree from Turkey, MBA in US, and I have taken accounting classes at Northern Virginia Community College to complete the credit requirements. I work as an Accountant in Washington D.C. Is there any requirement that I should work at CPA firm to be qualified for sitting for CPA exam? As my understanding from previous comments, it is the best who had been studied in abroad to take Delaware CPA exam. Please advice.

    Regards,

  • Souzy says:

    Hi Stephanie,
    I need to get my CPA in order to be able to find a full time job in the US.
    Recently most corporate offices are stressing on having CPA holder for their accounting positions.
    I have an MBA ( from a Private University in Lebanon) & a CMA( from the ICMA board in Monarch University in Australia)
    I have over than 13 yrs of experiance being teh Chief payroll officer in a leading private university in Lebanon, and 4 yrs of experinace in coporate offices in the US( being senior accountant / senior Finanacial analyst)
    what do u recommend me to do?? & do I have to sit for all the CPA exams??
    Thank you Stephanie….

    • Stephanie says:

      Hi Souzy,
      Oh is it really that the corporates are asking for CPA qualification now?
      May I ask whether your boss in the US is an active CPA licensee? That will make things much easier. If not, you can try to go through either Indiana (where you can find any CPA you know (not just your supervisor) that can verify your experience for you), or Illinois where working experience is not necessary for a CPA certificate.

      For CPA certificate vs license, please check the link.

      And yes… I am afraid you have to sit for all 4 sections of the CPA exam if you are going for it…

      Hope I answered your questions? Stephanie

  • Venky says:

    Stephanie,

    I highly appreciate the help that you are extending to the people.
    I have 3 years bachelors (Bachelor of commerce) from India. Currently I am working in US in IT (SAP FICO expert) and also doing MBA (will take 1 more year to complete) from University of Phoenix. I want to do CAP to add on to my credentials but not practice as CPA. I dont want to wait till the completation of MBA to do CPA. Looks like Delaware accepts 3 years bachelors, but I need to work under CPA to get the certificate. Can you pls help me with under which other state I meet the CPA exam requirements and CPA certificate requirements.

  • Stephanie says:

    Hi Venky,
    Thanks for your note! I would highly recommend that you complete (or almost complete) your MBA before applying because Delaware is the only state that accepts an associate degree. If an MBA it opens the door for many more states e.g. Illinois, where you don’t need to get experience to get the CPA certificate.

    But then, if you really want to give it a try, you can explore whether your 3-year degree can somehow be seen as equivalent to a 4-year one — it’s possible but depends on your school and your grades. Please check out the Indian policy of WES on this foreign credential evaluation page.

    Cheers, Stephanie

    P.S. By the way what do think about the MBA at University of Phoenix (or the school in general)? I am currently researching on a much-requested page on how to get extra credits for the CPA exam requirements and I’d love to know your views on Univ. of Phoenix. Thanks very much.

  • Venky says:

    Stephanie,

    Thanks for your reply. On MBA from UOP, I feel it is worth. Generic MBA gives 36 credits which costs around $25000 (12 classes) . If you do Concentration too, it will another 19 credits which costs another $10000 (5 classes). They do accept 3 year bachelors but non-english speaking national have to pas Berlitz english proficiency exam.

    On CPA, I heared that in some states you can appear for the exam and you can complet semister hour requirement with in 6 months from the date of the exam. Is it true ? If that is the case I want to sit for the exam 6 months before I complete my MBA.

    • Stephanie says:

      Hi Venky, thanks a lot for your input. I will let my readers know about your view on UoP.

      On the 6 month, yes some state does allow you to sit for the exam when you are “almost done” with all the courses. But please check with individual state for details. Stephanie

  • Venky says:

    Anar,
    I see you have taken Accounting classes from Northern Virginia Community College, can you pls help me with details like how long it take, money and credits.

    Thanks.

  • Nisha says:

    Hi Stephanie,

    Can you throw some light on Delaware board’s US federal tax course requirement..Does anyone who goes through DE board have to give the Tax course prior to giving the four exams

    Thanks in advance

  • Grant says:

    Hello Stephanie,
    I have a question about Delaware qualification.
    I am now enrolled in US university as a senior – 4 year bachelor accounting degree program. However, I finished my 3 year college diploma in accounting prior to US university for 1 year transfer program.
    Is my 3-year-diploma same as associate degree qualification in Delaware?
    And does canadian taxation course are treated same as us federal taxation in terms of Delaware qualification?
    Does delaware allow senior student sit for the test if 6 months left from graduation??
    Thank you in advance

    • Stephanie says:

      Hi Grant,
      I would think the 3-year diploma program should count as long as your school is regionally accredited in the US. But I am afraid that the Canadian taxation course won’t count as the State Board specifically said “US Federal taxation” as the requirement.

      On whether to grant student to sit earlier, let me check and get back to you. cheers, Stephanie

  • Santosh Nair says:

    Hi Stephanie,
    I have done my Bcom from India and currently I am going to appear for my CPA exam from Delaware.I just had a question from the licensing point of view, I wanted some explanation on the term accounting in academia ,does it mean that if I do my C.A from ICAI ,which is atleast 31/2 years course will I be qualified for the licensure.Please clarify this term as it would help me a lot.
    Thanks ,
    Regards Santosh.

    • Stephanie says:

      Hi Santosh Nair,
      I am afraid ICAI can’t help in the licensing… for Delaware, you’ll need to work in order to get qualified for the license. You might be able to get some credits recognized using your ICAI though.

      Regards,
      Stephanie

  • Zarak says:

    Hi Stephanie

    i must appreciate u regarding your dedication and support for international students.
    i have a query that is i got 103 credit hour from FASC and i waana aplly for colorado state.i have 2 years of bacholrs and 2 years of post graduate chartered accountancy and through 4 years i got only 103 hour.now plz let me know what can i do to sit in next 4 months.can i apply to delaware state based on this evaluation.?? i heard delaware required us federal taxation course so whether i can apply for CPA first or Tax Course first. Kindly advice.

    • Stephanie says:

      Hi Zarak,
      Thanks for your kind note! Hmm… yes for Delaware you’ll need to take the federal taxation course which you can find out more here.

      The only thing with Delaware is that you should be aware of the strict working requirements that you’ll need to fulfill after the passing of the CPA exam…

      Regards, Stephanie

  • Manish says:

    Hi Stephanie,
    My name is Manish and I am from India, I have gone through your website and really want to thank you for your efforts for international students. But I failed to get what I was looking for in the previous interactions and therefore I am confused. I do have a B.com degree from Calcutta University, in India. I am currently pursuing M.Com (Distance Learning Scheme). Besides I have passed the C.A. foundations (C.P.T.), under I.C.A.I, and also have completed 15 months of articleship in a CA firm. Please help me know that if I can take up the CPA course and if yes then how?

    • Stephanie says:

      Hi Manish,
      Thanks a lot for your kind note!

      For the purpose of CPA exam, correspondence / distance-learning from non-US universities do not count, so unfortunately the M.Com won’t be useful in this case.
      On B.Com, my understanding is that this is typically a 3-year degree so you’ll only be qualified in Delaware.

      May I ask whether your experience is supervised under a CPA (qualified in the US, Canada or Australia)? Because they only count experience with such qualification. For a 3-year equivalent degree, 4 years of accounting experience will be required.

      Regards,
      Stephanie

  • Manish says:

    Hi Stephanie,
    Thanks a lot for investing your precious time, answering my question. B.com is a 3 years course and the articleship experience that I have is supervised by a Chartered Accountant, who have qualified from (I.C.A.I) Institute of Chartered Accountants of India). I have undergone 15 months of articleship training under him. Please suggest if I could take up the course. If my qualifications are not enough please suggest any alternative way by which I could be able to get into the course.

    Regards,
    Manish

    • Stephanie says:

      Hi Manish,
      I am afraid ICAI doesn’t count… The state board only recognizes CPA US and those CA/CPA from countries that are part of the reciprocal arrangement (IQAB). Unless you are taking advanced courses from accredited universities, you’ll need to get the experience supervised by the US.

      Regards,
      Stephanie

  • Pardeep says:

    Hi Stephanie

    Thanks for your time. I am from Toronto, Canada. I evaluated my credentails from FACS USA for Delaware and got more than 150 credit hours but without US Federal Taxation course. Athabasca University, Alberta, Canada has one course for US Taxation http://www.athabascau.ca/html/syllabi/taxx/taxx304.htm which is approved by FACS USA, but FACS USA told me that Delaware is not accepting any online course outside USA, means Athabasca University is claiming wrong. Secondly, is the experience from Canadian Chartered Accountant is acceptable ? Third, is there any other state, where I can qualify without taking US Taxation exam.

    Regards

    Pardeep

    • Stephanie says:

      Hi Pardeep,

      That’s strange… if it is accredited it should have been approved by Delaware. But I also heard that online/correspondence courses offered by non-US institutions don’t work.

      Anyway, if you have more than 150 credit hours why don’t you try Illinois? Many canadians go through Illinois because the state board does not require social security number and no working experience is required to get the CPA certificate with 150 credit hours fulfilled. Also, I don’t think they require US taxation course.

      It’s true that there are certain restrictions on CPA certificate vs license but seems like most Canadians are fine with that.

      By the way, if you are a Canadian CA you can go through a much shorter version of the exam called IQEX. Please click on the link for more details.

      Regards, Stephanie

  • Pardeep says:

    Hi Stephanie

    After a lot of search I got the following information:

    Hi Stephanie

    I sent email to state board of accountancy regarding accreditation of US Taxation exam from Athabasca University, Alberta, Canada and here is the response.

    Please see the Rules and Regulations regarding Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. I hope you find this helpful!

    4.1.4.1 The applicant also must, upon request, submit proof that the college or university granting the degree was, at the time of the applicant’s graduation, accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools or by another comparable regional accrediting association. A degree granted by a college or university not so accredited at the time of applicant’s graduation will not be accepted. Graduates of non-United States (U.S.) degree programs will be required to have their credentials evaluated by a credential evaluation service acceptable to the Board, to determine equivalency to U.S. regional accreditation.

    Any comments, please.

    Thanks

    hi Stephanie.
    I live and work in the caribbean, can I do the CPA from Delaware, will I qualify even though my work experience is not at a US based CPA firm? I have an associates degree will this help

  • Arun says:

    Hi Stephanie,
    Thank you for all your time and dediction to International Students of CPA!.
    I got my evaluations done from FACS to give CPA exams with Delware state. FACS report mentioned that i have more than 150 study hours. but did not advise to do U.S. Federal Tax Course. So, i sent the application to Delaware Board and get a response from Delaware board that they are waiting for my Federal Tax Course transcript. I am from India studied B.Com (3 years) and M.B.A in Finance (2 years). Currently, I am in Chicago on rotation till January 2011. My questions are :

    1. i am doing Enrolled Agent course from I.R.S and cleared 2 part exams out of 3. Whether passing E.A exams will be considered equivalent to Federal Tax Course as E.A is all about Federal Tax itself. If so, i will sit for 3rd exam soon and can send the E.A clearance certificate to Delaware Board to process my application.

    2. By reading other discussions got to know Delaware is not a tw0-tier state. So, that means I can only attend exams but to get CPA certificate / license to practice i will have to meet 1 year experience (as M.B.A). Is my understanding is correct ?

    3. Also, based on your replys to other candidates questions, i am curious to know i may qualify for Illinois Board which is 2 tier system as of now. Is Federal Tax Course is mandatory for Illinois ?. Whether Illinois Board accepts Notarized copies of marks cards from me to evaluate my CPA application. If so, i may try with Illinois Board as well to do CPA.

    Please reply asap.

    Thank you once again for your time and help.

    Sorry for a very lengthy question

    Thanks,
    Arun

    Any specifics on the experience. I’m an internal auditor with 3+ years experience. 2+ under a CPA (but CPA is not CAE).

  • Sumesh says:

    Hello Stephanie,
    Thank you for helping the students who wants to be a CPA.

    I have B.Com(3 Years) and M.Com(2 Years) degree (regular) from India and have 3 years of teaching experience and for 9 years working for private companies. Since 2008 I have been working as Finance Manager in a software company in USA.

    Would all the above qualify me to appear for the CPA Exam? Please advice.

    Thanks,
    Sumesh.

    • Stephanie says:

      Hi Sumesh,
      Sounds like you have a good chance. I know from my readers that B.com + M.com can normally get you 150 credit hours but there are cases that people get less than that. It all depends on the courses studied, the grades and the school. So you’ll have to check with the evaluation agencies for sure.

      For Delaware I am quite sure you can get qualified, but please be careful with the working experience requirements.

      Looks like you have loads of experience in the US. If your work has been supervised by a CPA licensee then no problem you are all set.

      Hope it helps! Stephanie

  • Ruchi says:

    Hi Stephanie,

    I was unsure if I really want to pursue CPA until I found this webside. My sincere thanks to you.

    I have BCOM Degree from India and 5+years of experience (From India) in Finance and Accounts, Banking and Financial Services Sector.

    I plan to apply through Delaware. I am in US on L2 visa but not working as I recently had a baby. I plan to go back to India after couple of years. And will start my work again.

    Is it mandatory that I have my experience evaluated before making an application. I seek to obtain CPA license. Kindly advise if I will have to work under a CPA post CPA certificate. OR is my experience in India (If evaluated/verified by US CPA) sufficient to obtain CPA license.

    Thanks again.
    Regards,

    Ruchi.

    • Stephanie says:

      Hi Ruchi,
      First of all, thanks for your kind note!
      Your experience can count only if your work has been supervised by a US CPA licensee. (Note: Delaware does not recognize CPA equivalents e.g. those qualified from Canada and Australia). Let me know if it works for you. Stephanie

  • Sabeen says:

    Hi Stephanie,

      Hi Sabeen,
      No your experience can be obtained anywhere, even outside the US, as long as it is supervised and verified by a CPA (US) licensee. Stephanie

    Hi Stephanie,

    I got a non-accounting undergraduate degree (hospitality management degree) from Boston University few years ago and took couple accounting courses there. Since I do not have enough accounting courses to take the CPA exam, I have been taking few accounting courses from accredited community college and UC Berkeley Extention Online program. Do you know if these classes will be accepted? Do you think Delaware is the best choice? I just want to pass the exams so I can include it on my resume…I have been also working as “accountant” for past 3 years in corporate accounting.. Thanks!

    Stephanie,

    I meet the education requirements for my state Georgia, but I am not sure if I meet the experience requirements. I do have quite aabout 3 years of government accounting experience but my supervisor was not a CPA. Also does an internship under a CPA count towards experience or is it that I had to be an employee and not an intern.

  • Ivy says:

    Hello.

    I really appreciate your site. I have dilema: My undergrad university in Louisiana is saying that I have a substantial bill on my fee bill account, so I cannot get my undergraduate transcripts from that university. I have a Masters degree on top of that and will be taking the accounting concentration certificate over the next four months. I have 18 hours in accountng from a master’s program. I just need one more. I am also a full-time accountant for the government. I am wondering will I be able to submit just my graduate credits and degrees to apply for the Delaware cpa? Thanks for any of your help you can provide.

  • Santosh Nair says:

    Hi Stephanie,
    I wanted to know whether there is any difference in appearing for the CPA exam outside the US.What I mean is that ,I have read somewhere on the net that there could be some issues if you go for licensure.I am a BCom from India,and have got the eligibility from the State of Delaware,so I wanted to know that if I appeared for the same exam in UAE,will it affect my prospects of gaining licensure .Also let me know if the option of applying for UAE is a viable on e in the first place,hope it does not have conditions of citizenship like Japan.

  • Saif says:

    Hi All,

    I would like to get some information on CPA Program. I have a friend in INDIA wants to do CPA training and Exam from USA, He did his MBA and he has 5 Years of Experience in Accounting.

    I would like to know what Documents he should take for Visa interview and also what VISA he should apply at the Embassy to get entry into United States.

    Thanks,
    Saif

  • Santosh Nair says:

    Hi Saif,
    Well I just felt like telling you this,that I got the tourist visa purely on the following documents:
    1.Course details,if you are enrolled with any of the course providers in India,get a letter from them mentioning this.
    2.Get all your documents regarding the financing part of the trip and the exam,if its your parents like it was in my case,be sure to take a years bank statement.If you are working somewhere,please bring a letter showing so and if your employer is supporting you for it ,bring that too.
    3.If you are currently undergoing any course,please take a copy of the entire course details,like duration ,fees,fees already paid etc.
    Lastly remember the embassy will see whether you have a genuine reason for coming back to India,that is if you are applying for a tourist visa in the first place.In my case it was the letter that I got from my articled employer,regarding my pending articleship and a letter explaining the duration of Chartered Accountancy course in India,that helped.
    Wish you good luck !

  • Rash says:

    Hi Santosh – Can you please share where did you get your foreign transcripts evaluated and did you have to do a Federal Taxation course in order to qualify from Delware State.
    I am a B.Com (Mumbai Univ), CA Inter (India) and preparing for giving CPA exam from State of Delware.
    Any comments are greatly appreciated.
    Thanks Stephanie for starting such a great website.

  • Vaasan says:

    Hi Stephanie,
    Your website is very useful and thanks a lot for helping all CPA aspirants.
    I’ve seen the following at http://dpr.delaware.gov/boards/accountancy/faqs.shtml#Q6
    “Work experience is not required for a CPA Certificate. Work experience is required for a permit to practice. The experience must be obtained after you have your degree. It must be earned under the supervision of a licensed certified public accountant. For more detailed requirements, see Section 5.0 of the Board’s Rules and Regulations.”
    Is this still valid until mid-2012 and beyond? What’s the best way to get this confirmed? Thanks again!

  • Santosh Nair says:

    Hi Rash,
    Well I got my academic credentials evaluated from FACS.Also if you are a CA(Inter) you can apply for other boards also,Delaware is a good choice if you have done just a BCom .Another point with the evaluations is that it generally takes 6-8 weeks for the report to arrive ,so do keep that window in mind.

  • Rash says:

    Hey Santosh,
    Thanks a lot for reverting back .Can you please tell me from where you did your federal taxation course and whether it has to be done before the evaluation of the credentials and which other states in your opinion would be a good choice for me for the CPA exam.Thank you once again

  • Santosh Nair says:

    Hi Rash,
    The Federal Taxation course can be done after you get your evaluations done,durng the time you send your academic credentials for evaluations ,or before you send your papers.It all depends on the time you have at hand.I had started the Federal Taxation course when I had sent my papers for evaluation ,and it had come in hteir evaluation that I had to give the Federal Taxation course.Just a 3 weeks later I got my Federal Taxation transcripts and mailed the entire bunch to the State of Delaware. However,I think since you have cleared the C.A(Inter) exam the first point is that you need not give the Federal Taxation exam,your credentials itself are sufficient.The primary reason that they ask you to do a course in Federal Taxation is that the BCom degree in India is of 3 years ,so its equivalent to their associate baccaleurate degree as in U.S a baccaleaurate degree is of 4 years.So I dont think you need to go for the Federal Taxation part.This was however a provision a year ago ,when I was actually preparing for my CPA and C.A(Inter) together.
    One of the the most favourable boards to apply for would be Colarado,because I know many of my seniors have applied to this board when they had completed C.A(Inter).Even if you have done an M.BA I think you can be eligible,not sure though with the MBA part.However I am sure with the C.A9Inter)evaluation would be easy with the Colarado.
    Still if you feel like doing the Federal Taxation course ,one good one could be the one offered by Devry ,its basically a 3 months course,fees could be somewhere around Rs 15000-20000.
    Please feel free to contact if you need any more help on this.
    Bye and take care.

  • Nisha says:

    Hi Santosh,

    That was a great piece of advice in your latest reply..It would be really helpful if you can give your suggestion on my situation..

    I am currently in USA on H4 visa and I am planning to do CPA but i am in Virginia and they require SSN to sit for exam..SO i was plannin to gv exam thru Colorado board..

    So my question goes if i return to India in 2 years do they need license for CPA from colorado board or the passing marksheet for all the four exams for colorado would help me in getting a job in MNC.

    Also if you have any idea whethr I can work in Virginia with just passing my exams from Colorado..

    I hope I am not bothering you

    Thanks,

    Nisha

  • Santosh Nair says:

    Hi Nisha,
    I am not sure of how much this might help you,but if you are planning a job with an MNC in U.SA then probably a marksheet showing that you have passed all four sections is good enough.Again this depends on the choices that you have at your disposal,and the hiring procedure of the MNC.Passing the CPA exam and the marksheet are worth their weight n gold. Also you can work anywhere in the U.S.A after passing the exam,remeber applying for eligibility ,appearing for the exam and applying for licensure are all different aspects.You can be eligible from Colorado,sit for the exams in another state and work and later on apply for licensure from any state where you fit their licensure criteria.
    If you are planning to move to India in 2 years time,passing the CPA exam can give you the much needed break into a Big 4 or an MNC like say Accenture ,Capegemini,even foreign banks in India do hire CPA’s .But if you are a C.A and then doing your CPA it would certainly be more beneficial.The main reason for this being that even if you go to the Big 4 ,they would certainly prefer a Chartered Accountant from India completing or studying fro CPA than a CPA because a C.A can attest the financial statements of Indian companies.If this is the case with Big 4, you can very well judge the scenario with an MNC.The reason an MNC needs CPA’s in India is primarily because they have adopted IFRS or their businesses are all over the globe as their name suggests,still a C.A from India can get an upper hand because if you are a C.A in India you get the eligibility from almost all the state boards in U.S. An ideal move would be to appear for the exams ,clear it and work for a Big 4 for say 2 years ,gain experience and then shift to India,as this would give you experience ,which could compensate if you are not a C.A from India.
    As with the part of you going through the Colorado board,if you have the eligibility for it definitely go for it.
    You can get more information about the eligibility criteria from the State of Colorado website,still not sure of how much this has been of help,but feel free to contact if you still have any doubts.

  • Nisha says:

    Hello Santosh,

    That was really very helpful to me..

    As far as my education background goes I am BCOM,MCOM and MBA from Mumbai..I completed my MBA in finance and immidiately came to US with my husband to US on H4…here I cannot work on dependent visa so i thought to study further..My friends suggested me to do CPA..

    My only concern is that I plan to work in Virginia is it ok If I appear through Colorado or any board?

    Is just passing the exams from Colorado board help me to find job in USA and then later on wen I come back India after few years…

    Actually Virginia board allows to sit for the exam with drivers license but then i have to wait to get it and then apply thru VA board..

    I know right now the H1 condition is tight so after completing CPA its going to be tough to find a job..But better to do something then doing nothing..

    So do you feel just passing the four exams from any state would help me..I am just planning to work for companies…So do the companies look for CPA’s with licensure?

    Also one more query do they give any recognition in the form of certificate for passing all the four exams?

    Thanks a lot again for your help..

    Regards,

    Nisha

  • Rash says:

    Hi Santosh – Thanks a lot for the detailed reply to my query,that helped a lot but when I called the Delaware coordinator she said federal taxation course it compulsory for everyone who chooses to give exam from Delaware. So what do you think about New Hampshire since they also require 120 hours but equivalent to a bachelors degree, I am not sure if Bcom+ CA Inter will fulfill the requirement ,since it not associate but bachelors. Can you guide me with this because as far as possible I am looking to qualify for exam without doing anything extra. Any help would be appreciated.Thanks.

  • Shishir says:

    Hi,
    I am a B.Com (attended 3 year college in Pune), M.Com (external-no college attendance reqd) and Chartered Accountant from India. After passing CA in India in 2002, I worked for 3 years in a small Pvt Ltd company in Mumbai as Finance controller and afterwards joined as a big MNC in Pune as financial analyst. After working for 2 years in this MNC, I came on L1 visa to US and have been working here as Asst Treasurer and Cash Controller for this big MNC.
    I understand I can appear from Delaware only, are there any restrictions, anything to be careful about and how to go about CPA. Shall I join a coaching like Becker?

    Any help and suggestions will be highly appreciated.

    Best.

  • Santosh Nair says:

    Hi Shishir,
    I think you are more than eligible for most of the states board for CPA exam.Since you are a C.A you are eligible for Colorado and many more states.Add your work experience post qualification and your P.G Degree,and I am sure you will qualify th criteria for more states.
    For the coaching part,it ultimately depends on you,whether you want to go for Beckers or Yaegers or any other review provider.I had a good enough experience with Beckers,as they do guide you with all these formalities.If you are currently in India,then going to Beckers will help a lot because they do help you a lot with all these formalities like finding the right board .Whereas if you are in USA then all you need to do is contact the state board corordinator and tell them your qualifications,and the rest could be taken care of.Also a point to remember is that even if your P.G i.e MCom degree is done extenally it is still to be added to your qualificatins,because for exam credential purposes add each one of your qualifications and your experience both in India and U.S.A,so that you get more exam credits.Please do not think that because your MCom was done externally it is not eligible,for this purpose the only thing that matters is the subjects chosen and the duration of the course.
    In your case since you are working ,I believe Yaegers could be of great value because they do have small sized lectures on a flash drive and the entire course can be done at your pace in a very relaxed manner.Ultimately which course provider to choose is a personal call,and to know more please do refer to Stphanie’s previous discussion’s on this very topic.
    Hope this was of some help.

  • Santosh Nair says:

    Hi Rash ,
    See if you sit for the exam with the Delaware board you will have to appear for the federal taxation course only if you have a plain associate degree which is a bachelors degree in India( 3years). I have currently appearde from the Delaware board ,and the only reason I had to appear from the Delaware board is that I had not cleared the 2nd group of C.A (Inter),otherwise I was eligible for other boards also. A good idea would be to go to a course provider with you educational details and then take their opinion ,also conatact other states board coordinators like from Colorado ,so that you get a better idea of their requirements.
    If you have cleared C.A Inter like in your case you are definitely eligible for other boards and not just Delaware.The BCOm degree though is considered as associate degree when added with the educational qualifications of C.A Inter becomes much more than their 4 years degree,so don’t worry just contact a course provider and different board coordinators and things will be fine.
    Hope this was of some help,feel free to contact me if you have any doubts.

  • Santosh Nair says:

    Hi Nisha,
    The answer to your first query would be Yes,it is OK if you appear from one board and work in another jurisdiction.Also you can appear from one board and sit for the exams in another state.I appeared from the Delaware board and gave my exams in Atlanta,so being qualified to appear for the exam,the actual exam center ,and the licensure are all different aspects and can be though of differently. You can give the exam from one board and apply for licensure from another board,if you are eligible ,so there is no such criteria that if you want a licensure from the state of say Georgia you have to appear for exams in Georgia ,or you should have been eligible for you exams from Georgia.
    For the other queries the answer is a Yes again .Passing all parts of the exam will definitely give you an edge to find a job in the U.S. Also they give you a hard copy of your marksheets showing that you have cleared the exams.All you need to do then is to just take the marksheets for your interview.
    Hope this was of some help,if you still have any doubts do contact me .

    HI Santosh
    i am following ur comments n helping others than Stephanie which is good but i beg to differ when u r commenting to Nisha’s querries, when u say – “if you are CA from India u r eligible from all the states”
    which is not true at all, as some states accept very few but not all, so cross check then comment as it leads to lot of confusion.

    Hi, Stephanie,
    I want to be licensed in Delaware. And I am applying for CPA exam now.

    I have a Master Degree in US, and all my accounting credits earned in a US college. But i have a bachelor degree outside US. Do I still need to get international evaluation?

    Thank you. Your posts and website are always so helpful.
