10:15-18-3. Retake and granting of credit requirements 

(a)    A grade of seventy-five (75) in each required test section shall be the minimum passing grade for purposes of granting credit.
(b)    A candidate may take the required test sections individually and in any order. Credit for any test section(s) passed shall be valid for eighteen months from the date the candidate took that test section, without having to attain a minimum score on any failed test section(s) and without regard to whether the candidate has taken other test sections.
(1)    A CPA candidate must pass all four test sections of the AICPA Uniform CPA Examination within a rolling eighteen-month period, which begins on the date that the first test section(s) passed is taken. In the event all four test sections of the AICPA Uniform CPA Examination are not passed within the rolling eighteen-month period, credit for any test section(s) passed outside the eighteen-month period will expire and that/those test section(s) must be retaken.
(2)    A PA candidate must pass the Financial Accounting and Reporting (FAR), Auditing and Attestation (AUD), and Regulation (REG) sections of the AICPA Uniform CPA Examination within a rolling eighteen-month period, which begins on the date that the first test section(s) passed is taken. In the event all three test sections of the PA Examination are not passed within the rolling eighteen-month period, credit for any test section(s) passed outside the eighteen-month period will expire and that/those test section(s) must be retaken.
(3)    A candidate cannot retake a failed test section(s) in the same examination window. An examination window refers to a three-month period in which a candidate has an opportunity to take the CPA/PA examination (comprised of two months in which the examination is available to be taken and one month in which the examination will not be offered while routine maintenance is performed and the item bank is refreshed). Thus, a candidate will be able to test two out of the three months within an examination window.
(c)    A candidate shall be deemed to have passed the CPA examination once the candidate holds at the same time valid credit for passing each of the four test sections of the examination within the rolling eighteen month period. For purposes of this section, credit for passing a test section of the computer-based examination is valid from the actual date of the testing event for that test section, regardless of the date the candidate actually receives notice of the passing grade.
(d)    A candidate shall be deemed to have passed the PA examination once the candidate holds at the same time valid credit for passing each of the three test sections of the examination within the rolling eighteen month period. For purposes of this section, credit for passing a test section of the computer-based examination is valid from the actual date of the testing event for that test section, regardless of the date the candidate actually receives notice of the passing grade.
