If you apply with international education, you are required to provide proof that the audit course completed abroad has a concentration in U.S. GAAS. Along with the evaluation of international education, you must also provide the following:
- A letter from the school confirming the audit course has a concentration in US GAAS
- The course’s syllabus
- The primary textbook used to include the name of the publisher and the authors.
Failure to provide this information will result in an incomplete application.
Please be advised that if you are applying with international education at this time, you are subject to a Colorado State Board of Accountancy Review. In this case, the evaluation process may be extended up to three months.
All educational documents including official school transcripts, SSN Affidavit, course syllabus, textbook used for audit course, or letter from school confirming U.S. GAAS concentration and/or international evaluations with international transcripts are required to be submitted at the time of application. These documents are required to be mailed directly to CPAES from the academic institution or evaluation service.
Education requirements must be met through academic coursework completed at an accredited institution. Professional training is not acceptable toward these requirements. Coursework completed as part of a Chartered Accountant program is considered professional training and is, therefore, not accepted toward the education requirements for the U.S. Uniform CPA Examination.
