After registration closes, you may still register for a module; however, as you missed the deadline, you will need to add yourself to the Wait List. We review the list every week and close it one week before the module starts.  

To register for the Wait List: 

  • Log into My CPA portal 
  • Select Module Registration  
  • Select the session 
  • Click on Wait List for the module. 

To join the wait list, you will need to pay a non-refundable fee in addition to the module fee. We cannot guarantee your choice of workshop or exam locations.  

You will receive an email within 2 to 3 business days confirming availability in the module and indicating which locations you have been approved to attend for the workshop and exam. You will have two business days from when you receive that email to log into My CPA Portal and register for the module.

Applicants who have not completed the CPA preparatory courses will also be charged CPA PEP dues at the time of admission. For CPA preparatory course graduates, dues are assessed and charged within two weeks after your Core 1 orientation workshop.
