How Much Does the CPA Exam Cost by State

Get your checkbooks ready because we are about to go shopping. This is the moment you all have been waiting for. No, we are not shopping for Fendi purses, Apple watches, or Montblanc writing instruments. We are shopping for something much more intangible, the CPA Exam. You may be wondering. “How much does the CPA Exam actually cost?” Although the Exam is uniform in content, the CPA Exam is NOT uniform in price. As of now, there are 55 jurisdictions where the CPA Exam is offered, which means there are 55 prices available. The price of the CPA Exam along with the initial application fee tends to be right under $1,000. That’s right, $1,000. You will definitely be dropping dimes.
