Submitting Your Transcripts to the CBA
Applicants can submit official transcripts one of three ways:
- Request official, paper transcripts to be sent directly from your school to the CBA.
- Obtain official, sealed transcripts and submit them with your CPA Exam Application or CPA Licensing Application.
Order an electronic transcript to be sent to the CBA by an approved provider.
