Self Assessment

Welcome to the CPA Ontario Self-Assessment Tool

This tool can help you determine which courses remain outstanding in order to qualify for admission in to the CPA Professional Education Program (CPA PEP).

Please note that this tool is designed for those who have a degree from, or are currently enrolled in, a post-secondary institution in Ontario and intend to complete the CPA program through the CPA path.

If you do not fall under one of these categories, please visit Get Started Today to learn how you can self-assess.

Be advised the results provided by this tool are unofficial and are intended only as a guide. An official transcript assessment is required for registration.
