CPA Exam Grades


The Oregon Board of Accountancy CPA Examination candidates can view their scores online through the NASBA Gateway by accessing your candidate portal.  Beginning July 1, 2020, NASBA is offering continuous testing.  For an overview of continuous testing, NASBA has prepared a video presentation available at

For a list of CPA exam score release dates, please visit  Original score notification forms will be sent to candidates by USPS mail.

Candidates may sit for any of the four sections of the exam individually and in any order. A candidate who fails to pass any section of the exam may retake that section.   Once a score for a section has been released, the candidate can apply to retake that section.  The passing grade for all sections of the exam is 75.
Credit for each exam section is valid for 18 months from the date the candidate sat for each section(s).  Upon passing any exam section, the passing date of that section will be the date the candidate took that section. Candidates no longer have to attain a minimum score in other sections to retain credit for a passed section. 

Candidates must pass all four sections within a rolling 18 month period which begins on the date the first section(s) is passed.  Candidates who do not pass all sections within the 18 month rolling period will lose credit for any section(s) passed outside the 18 month period and those sections must be taken again.
Public Accountant Candidates (PA):
Candidates sitting for the examination to become a Public Accountant (PA) must sit for specific exam sections.  Candidates who applied and sat for the CPA examination as a PA candidate in either 2000 or 2001 must sit for the Audit (AUD) and Regulation (REG) sections.
Candidates who applied and sat for the CPA examination as a PA Candidate after January 1, 2002, are required to take the Business Environment Concepts (BEC), Financial Accounting and Reporting (FAR) and Regulation (REG) sections.
If you have successfully passed all required sections, you are now on your way to becoming licensed. Please review the details on licensing requirements.

Any change of address must be submitted to the Board in writing by fax, email or regular mail.   Failure to report an address change may delay receipt of examination grades.  Grades will not be released by phone or email.

Disputing Your CPA Exam Score

NASBA provides score review and score appeal services. Through them, candidates may request to review and appeal their scores. The likelihood that a candidate's score will change because of a review or an appeal is extremely low. However, the decision to review or appeal is up to the candidate.
During a limited period of time following score release, candidates may request a review of the scores they earned at the most recent examination given. 
Rescore requests must be in writing and must include the following information:
1.  The candidates' name, mailing address, telephone number, jurisdiction and email address;
2.  Examination sections to be re-scored;
3.  The Examination Sections ID number (as posted on their Notice to Schedule, NTS)
4.  Certified Check or money order made payable to NASBA Rescore Service. 

Rescore fees are $240 for each exam section.
All requests should be addressed to:
Rescore Service
PO Box 440555
Nashville TN  37244
Incomplete requests will NOT be processed and will be returned to the candidate by NASBA.  It takes 6-8 weeks to obtain rescore results.  Candidates should be advised that it is extremely unlikely that their scores will change because of the AICPA thorough process of grading and re-grading.  However, the decision is up to the candidate.
