Ethics Exam Information

A key step in obtaining your CPA license is passing the ethics exam.

The ethics exam is an open-book, multiple choice exam. You can order the ethics exam needed for CPA licensure through MOCPA below.

Candidates can order, take, and submit answers for the ethics exam at any time during the licensure process. Some may take the ethics exam before starting the CPA exam, between CPA exam sections, or after all four sections of the CPA exam are completed. This is completely up to the candidate; it just needs to be completed prior to submitting the CPA licensure application. The ethics exam does not need to be completed during the 18-month rolling window of the CPA exam. Your manual will have instructions as to how you may submit your answers online.
