Washington DC State Board allows candidates to sit for the exam before fulfilling the 150 credit hour requirements, but to get the license this has to be complete. The other requirements such as working experience are quite standard.
Note to international candidates: Washington DC (also known as District of Columbia) is a different jurisdiction from the Washington State.
*Launched in Apr 2016* The NASBA Experience Verification service is now available to those who do not have access to an active U.S. CPA for verification.
CPE is required for license holders. Please click here for Washington DC CPA CPE requirements.

I am the author of How to Pass The CPA Exam (published by Wiley), and I also passed all 4 sections of the CPA Exam on my first try. Additionally, I have led webinars, such as for the Institute of Management Accountants, authored featured articles on websites like Going Concern and AccountingWeb, and I'm also the CFO for the charity New Sight. Finally, I have created other accounting certification websites to help mentor non-CPA candidates. I have already mentored thousands of CPA, CMA, CIA, EA, and CFA candidates, and I can help you too!
