To start, log into My CPA Portal. Go to ‘Program Admission’ and click on ‘Admission Application’. 

  • Select the ‘PREP Graduate’ registration category. 
  • Select preferred PEP Session  
  • Complete declarations and consent as prompted. 
  • Pay the initial registration fee. 

This completes the submission of your Admission Application. Your application will be reviewed and approved within three business days. Please ensure you submit your admission application at least five days before CPA PEP module registration closes. Please refer to the CPA PEP schedule available here for module registration dates. 

If you have completed any outstanding pre-requisites at a post-secondary institution and have not yet submitted the transcript, please have your official transcript forwarded to: 

CPA Western School of Business 

201-1074 103A Street SW 

Edmonton, AB T6W 2P6 

You are not required to submit documentation for courses taken through CPAWSB. 

Your transcript assessment will be updated to reflect the completed prerequisite course(s) before the start of Core 1. A university degree and 120 post-secondary credit hours are required for entry to CPA PEP. Please note expired courses may impact your eligibility. 

When you receive email notification that your admission application was approved, you can register via My CPA Portal and pay for Core 1 during the CPA PEP module registration period. Module registrations received after the registration deadline are subject to a wait list fee. Core 1 module fees will be refunded to students who are deemed ineligible to begin Core 1 at this time.

If you are unsuccessful in your last preparatory course, you will be required to register in the next offering of the course/exam by that exam registration deadline or you will be withdrawn from CPA PEP and will not be able to re-apply until you become eligible again.

Once Core 1 has begun, your account will be reviewed for outstanding fees. These additional fees will be calculated based on the CPA PEP candidate dues owed, less CPA preparatory course student dues paid for the applicable academic year (April 1 to March 31).
