CBA-Approved Foreign Credentials Evaluation Services

Candidates who attended or graduated from foreign schools may satisfy the Uniform CPA Examination education requirements based upon an evaluation of foreign transcripts by any of the CBA-approved foreign credentials evaluation services listed below. Official evaluations MUST be in the original sealed envelope, or mailed directly to the CBA by the CBA-approved foreign credentials evaluation service provider. Candidates are responsible of ensuring the timely submission of the evaluation. Please note that foreign credential evaluation services typically take three to six weeks to provide evaluation reports.

NOTE: The education earned through the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) outside of an accredited degree-granting institution of higher learning does not qualify toward California’s education requirements as specified in Business and Professions Code section 5094, which requires that education earned outside the United States be equivalent to education earned from an accredited degree-granting institution of higher learning.

Qualifying ACCA education that is earned in conjunction with a conferred baccalaureate degree or higher and appear on a foreign transcript from an institution that is equivalent to a regionally or nationally accredited educational institution in the United States will be considered.

NOTE: Foreign credentials evaluation services do NOT evaluate transcripts from U.S. schools. If U.S. school transcripts are sent to the evaluation service they do NOT forward them to the CBA.
