  • Contact the Registrar’s Office of each college/university that you attended to have your transcript sent directly to the Board.
     
  • File a Report of Practical Work Experience (RPE) (Word), which documents at least one year of experience in accounting, advice using accounting, attest, management advisory, financial advisory, tax or consulting skills.
     
  • Complete the self-study course titled, “Professional Ethics: The AICPA’s Comprehensive Course” and send a copy of the course completion certificate to the Board.
     
    • After passing the exam, mail your supporting documentation to:

      Maryland Board of Public Accountancy
      500 N. Calvert Street, 3rd Floor
