Awarding a Certificate of CPA Exam Completion

The Illinois Board of Examiners (ILBOE) is a state agency that evaluates academic credentials, approves candidates to sit for the Uniform CPA Examination, monitors CPA examination testing activity throughout the year and issues the Certificate of CPA Exam Completion upon passing the exam as well as to those qualified for the Total Transfer of Credit certificate. Illinois is classified as a two-tier state. This means that the Illinois Certificate of CPA Exam Completion is issued upon successful completion of the CPA examination and “Professional Ethics: The AICPA’s Comprehensive Course”. And the license is issued by the IDFPR upon successful completion of their requirements.
