In response to the recommended measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, Prometric are closing their US and Canadian testing centers until at least April 16th. This means that all current students in the process of testing will receive emails to reschedule after the closure ends, with no rescheduling fees applied.

But if you’re a CPA Student, you may have been wondering what that means for your Notice to Schedule.

Well, if you have an open NTS that will be expiring within the April 1–June 30 2020 time frame, you may receive an extension.

National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) has recommended that state boards of accountancy extend all NTS with expirations between that timeline until Sept. 30, 2020. There is no action required by candidates at this time, and there is no need to contact either NASBA or a board of accountancy – especially with the closings of many board offices, the decisions to extend conditional credit will not be finalized until the boards resume their normal operations. Instead, you can simply monitor social media channels and websites for updates on when NTS extensions are finalized.
