Education Assistance Program

The Board offers an education assistance program for students who can demonstrate financial need, and are seeking to sit for the CPA exam.  The program is designed to assist with the cost of tuition for the fifth year of study required to sit for the CPA exam.  Students are encouraged  to view the education assistance checklist to see if they meet minimum qualifications, and if so, complete the Application.

No funds can be paid if a student already meets academic requirements for admission to the CPA examination.

Education assistance funds are made payable to the college or university.

Your application should include the following:

  • Student FAFSA Report:
  • All Official Transcripts
  • Class schedule for current semester
  • Tuition bill for current semester

When submitting your application please be sure to submit all documentation.  Failure to do so may result in a delay of processing your application.
