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 written and graded by the AICPA. You can order the AICPA 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.

You can select from either a hard copy or online version of the AICPA's ethics exam to fulfill your ethics requirement:

Exam materials are available through MOCPA for $199 (hard copy) or $179 (online version) and include a 2018-2019 auxiliary membership with the society, at the time of your purchase.
