Exam Score Release
Score Release Dates
The target release date indicates when NASBA plans to release the scores to the Illinois Board of Examiners (ILBOE) electronically. Please note that sometimes there is a delay between the release date and the date when we actually receive the scores. Please do not contact the office inquiring about the score release. Instead, monitor our website or social media outlets, Facebook and Twitter, for the score release announcement. For more details, please see the AICPA’s Score Release Timeline or use the keywords “score release” for the search box option located in the upper right-hand corner of the AICPA’s website.
Score Release Timeframe
Once we receive the scores, they are posted to your ILBOE online account, and we post a notification of their release on our website’s homepage and on Facebook and Twitter.
Do not call the ILBOE unless your score did not post to your exam history within 24 hours of notification. BEC scores tend to be delayed about 1 week due to additional quality control during the scoring process.
Within 1-2 weeks of the grades posting, we receive the hard copy scores from NASBA, which includes a report summary for failing scores, copy them on official score paper and mail them.
Please remember that in your online account under the Exam History, a “W” will appear. This stands for “Waiting for Score”. It will eventually be replaced with the actual score. If the “W” or section itself does not appear, do not contact the office. This happens frequently. As long as you received a confirmation at the end of the exam, a score will be uploaded.

Q: When do I receive my hard copy score displaying the performance report?
A: Within 1-2 weeks of the grades posting, we receive the hard copy scores from NASBA, which includes a report summary for failing scores, copy them on official score paper and mail them.
