  • 150 semester credit hours of college or university study that includes an accounting concentration or equivalent.
  • Hold a bachelor’s degree or higher.
  • Complete the AICPA’s professional ethics course.
  • Education requirements to sit for the CPA exam will change July 1, 2013. Current and upcoming education requirements are available on the Illinois Board of Examiners website.
  • If a candidate has previously qualified academically to take the CPA exam any time in the past, the candidate does not have to meet the new requirements.

  • Pass the CPA examination and provide the IDFPR with verification of Illinois CPA certificate.
  • One year of full-time employment experience providing service or advice involving the use of accounting skills.
