NSBCPA is launching a first-of-its-kind Certified Public Accountant (CPA) Exam Bootcamp Program for Black Accounting Students.

One of the reasons we thought it was important to start this organization is because Blacks currently make up less than 1% of CPAs in America. In 2021 we celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the first Black CPA, John Cromwell; if not now then when will we increase the number of Black CPAs.

The National Society of Black CPAs is laser-focused on increasing the number of Black CPAs. “We developed our own CPA Exam Review that encompasses study methods to enhance the skills of Black students by providing professors from our community,” said Felicia Farrar, Chair NSBCPA.

This one of a kind virtual program also includes:

  1. Placement Assessment
  2. Pre-recorded Black CPA/professor accounting sessions
  3. Weekly CPA exam review sessions led by Black CPAs
  4. Weekly accountability study sessions
  5. CPA mentor assigned to each student
  6. Application and test fee support

You must be an NSBCPA student or candidate member to apply so if you haven't taken that step yet please apply by going here: then come back to this page once your NSBCPA membership has been approved.

The deadline to apply for the FAR cohort of CPA Breakthrough is Monday, January 3, 2022. And the sessions will begin January 22, 2022 and continue for 16 weeks.
