Question: I am taking college courses. Do they count for CPE?

Answer: All licensees will be given CPE credit for graduate level courses. Credit shall be given at the rate of 15 CPE hours for each semester credit hour. CPE credit granted for these hours will be given only for a grade of C or above. A grade of C- or below is not considered as satisfactory completion of a course by the board. Please note that all courses must meet the definition of a CPE course pursuant to 872 IAC 1-3-3.4.

Question: If I am not practicing when I renew, do I need CPE?

Answer: No. You may renew inactive without obtaining any CPE hours. When in an inactive status you may not practice or hold yourself out as a licensee. You may use the initials “CPA, PA, or AP” only if the word “inactive” follows.

Question: How do I activate my inactive license?

Answer: Obtain 120 hours of CPE. The hours must be obtained no EARLIER than 3 years prior to the date the application is submitted for activation. Ten percent of the 120-hour requirement must be in accounting and/or auditing and at least 2 hours of the 120-hour requirement must be in ethics for accountants. No more than 50% of the total 120 may be in self-study.

Question: How do I report my CPE?

Answer: Report the continuing education on the renewal application. Licensees are required to sign a statement on the renewal form attesting that they have complied with the CPE requirements, if applicable. The Board may verify any information submitted by the applicant and may request the applicant to submit evidence supporting the course information.
