If you’re a legacy CA student, learn the transition guidelines for completing the CPA certification program and how to complete your CA practical experience requirements (PER).
The CPA profession is committed to ensuring that the education and experience you completed for a legacy designation will be recognized toward the CPA designation, and you will therefore make the transition to the appropriate point in the CPA education program.
Legacy students have until September 1, 2018 (August 31, 2018 in B.C.) to complete legacy practical experience requirements. The profession will continue to recognize legacy PER completed by September 1, 2018. For more information, review the Transition Students Guidelines.
