    Q. Do I have to be a CPA and a member of the AICPA to apply?

    Yes. You must be a regular member in good standing and hold a valid and unrevoked CPA certificate issued by a legally constituted state authority.

    Q. I was notified that I met the requirements, what happens next?

    Once documentation and payment have been submitted and approved, the AICPA will review and issue an approval letter. At this time:

    1. Individuals may use the CITP credential in accordance with the rules of the state in which they practice. Members are not authorized to use the credential until they receive this notice.
    2. At the applicant's request, their state society will be notified so the information can be promoted in state society newsletters.
    3. A CITP certificate and welcome kit will be sent to the successful candidate under separate cover.

    Note: in some cases, applicants may be required to provide additional information in support of their application.

    Q. How long will it take to get the results of my application?
