在美国国家会计委员会联合会(NASBA)和美国注册会计师协会(AICPA)的共同努力下,CPA Evolution计划主要是转变CPA执照的模式,来满足会计实践在当今和将来都将需要快速变化的技能和能力。


新的CPA考试预计将于2024年启动

AICPA理事会和NASBA董事会将会投票支持推进CPA Evolution计划:实施核心+学科的新模式模型,目标是在2024年启动新的Uniform CPA考试。


To All CPA Examination Candidates:

Have you heard of the CPA Evolution initiative? Are you aware that the Uniform CPA Examination (CPA Exam) is changing significantly in January 2024? 

It is important that you learn about this initiative and the upcoming changes to the CPA Exam to fully understand how it might impact your journey to CPA licensure. 

If you pass and retain credit for all four CPA Exam sections by December 31, 2023, the changes to the CPA Exam will NOT impact your journey. 

If you will still be working your way through the CPA Exam in January 2024 and beyond, then the information about the CPA Evolution-aligned CPA Exam (the 2024 CPA Exam) and transition policy are most important to understand. 


It’s never been a more exciting time to pursue the CPA license. The role of today’s CPA has evolved, and newly licensed CPAs are taking on increased responsibilities that were traditionally assigned to more experienced staff. 

Becoming a CPA means you’ll need greater skill sets and competencies, and a greater knowledge of emerging technologies. That is why the CPA Evolution initiative is underway. 

It is a joint effort of the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).

新的CPA考试预计将于2024年启动

AICPA理事会和NASBA董事会将会投票支持推进CPA Evolution计划:实施核心+学科的新模式模型,目标是在2024年启动新的Uniform CPA考试。


什么是核心+学科模型?


该模型从会计、审计、税收和技术等方面作为核心(core)基础,所有候选人都必须完成这一核心。其次,每个候选人都将选择一门学科(discipline)来展示更深的技能和知识。

选择进行测试的学科并不意味着候选人只局限于该实践领域,无论选择哪种学科,都能够获得完整证书,其权利和特权与任何其他美国注册会计师一致。

The new CPA licensure and CPA Exam model is a Core + Discipline model. The model starts with a robust core in accounting, auditing, and tax that all candidates will have to complete. Then, each candidate must choose a Discipline section in which to demonstrate greater skills and knowledge. 

Technology knowledge and skills will be tested in all sections, as it pertains to each section. Regardless of a candidate’s chosen discipline, this model leads to a full CPA license, with rights and privileges consistent with any other CPA. The Discipline section selected for testing does not mean the CPA is limited to that practice area. 


什么是DISCIPLINE?


学科部分为求职者提供了机会,以证明其在该专业的一个支柱中具有更深的知识水平,但并不会阻止求职者获得许可后就不从事该学科。预计这三个学科是:

①业务报告与分析

②信息系统与控制

③税务合规与计划


The new Disciplines reflect three pillars of the CPA profession:

    Business analysis and reporting (BAR)

    Information systems and controls (ISC)

    Tax compliance and planning (TCP)

If you anticipate continuing your CPA Exam journey into 2024 and beyond, the much-anticipated transition policy is important news. This policy lays out how CPA Exam sections passed under the current CPA Exam map to credit under the 2024 CPA Exam. Transition policies like this have been necessary at other times when significant changes were made to the CPA Exam, such as when it was computerized in April 2004.



The policy was recommended to the Boards of Accountancy by the NASBA CBT Administration Committee after development and much deliberation by a task force with state board representatives from the AICPA Board of Examiners, sitting state board members and executive directors from multiple states. Because of the significant differences in the current and 2024 CPA Exams and the overall CPA licensure model, a perfect transition is not possible. The Boards of Accountancy have agreed this transition policy best serves the candidates, the state boards and the public interest.



The transition policy is quite simple. Candidates who have credit for AUD, FAR or REG on the current CPA Exam will not need to take the corresponding new core section of AUD, FAR or REG on the 2024 CPA Exam. Candidates who have credit for BEC on the current CPA Exam will not need to take any of the three discipline sections.  


If, however, a candidate loses credit for AUD, FAR or REG after December 31, 2023, they then must take the corresponding new Core section of AUD, FAR or REG. A candidate who loses credit for BEC after December 31, 2023, must select one of the three Discipline sections to be tested.  

It is important to note that none of the sections of the current CPA Exam will be available for testing after December 31, 2023. There is a hard cutover from the current CPA Exam sections to the 2024 CPA Exam sections on the January 2024 launch.


The following chart lays out 

the transition policy for each Exam section.

The CPA profession is at an exciting juncture as it moves to the CPA Evolution model. To prepare for the 2024 CPA Exam launch, the Exposure Draft of the 2024 CPA Exam, which includes the draft Blueprints, will be released by the AICPA on July 1, 2022, and will outline the content and skills proposed for each section of the 2024 CPA Exam. The 2024 CPA Exam Final Report, which will include the final Blueprints, is scheduled to be released in January 2023, a year before the 2024 CPA Exam launches. 

FAQs are available that might answer some of your more detailed questions regarding the newly released transition policy.
