The cost will vary for each jurisdiction. In Illinois, the cost for first-time domestic candidates applying to take all four sections is $723.20 . These costs cover the grading fee, the seat time at the testing center and processing fees charged by the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) and the state board application fee. A candidate first pays an application fee to the Board of Examiners. After board approval, the remaining examination fees are paid to NASBA.
