To obtain CPA licensure, you must meet the three Es: Education, Experience, and Exam. Following are the specific requirements for examination and licensing in American Samoa.
At the present time, the only pathway to licensure in American Samoa is through reciprocity. The board has yet to establish a website for informational purposes. Information for the American Samoa Territorial Board of Public Accountancy can be found through the American Samoa Bar Association (opens new window).
Note:Completing a WGU degree program does not guarantee employment or licensure in any profession. Requirements for licensure in accounting vary from state to state. For example, some states require a background check that may disqualify you from obtaining a license if you have committed certain actions, crimes, or misdemeanors. Students should contact WGU Business Licensure at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to contacting their State Board of Accountancy regarding education and experience requirements. The Licensure team is available to students and alumni for all accounting licensure questions and advisement. Although the Licensure team can provide initial guidance, it is ultimately the student’s responsibility to continually check with the state licensing board where you intend to seek licensure to confirm all licensing requirements.
