Step 4: Submit Original Licensure Application

After passing all four parts of the CPA Exam; applicants must submit CPA Original Licensure application to the Florida Board of Accountancy along with a $50 non-refundable fee within three years of receiving notification from NASBA of passing the last part of the CPA exam.  Applicants must also provide evidence of one year acceptable work experience and submit official transcripts evidencing completion of a baccalaureate degree, plus an additional 30 semester hours/45 quarter hours of education in excess of the baccalaureate degree to include 12 semester hours/18 quarter hours of upper division accounting and 15 semester/22 quarter hours of upper division general business courses.

*If an applicant does not apply for licensure within this three year period, CPA examination grades expire and the applicant must reapply and retake the CPA examination. Furthermore, applicants will be required to meet the education requirements in effect at the time of the new application.*
