When entering your address in Certemy do not use commas. The NASBA upload is a CSV file and adding commas will cause your ATT requests to be rejected by the Gateway system.
Be sure the name you apply with matches your passport or identification of choice. Any name change request will cause your application to be rejected and you will have to start the process over.
The Exam Application is for first-time AICPA Uniform CPA exam candidates who have not previously sat for the exam in another state.
The Grade Transfer Application is for AICPA Uniform CPA candidates who have previously sat for the exam in another state and have either passed all parts of the exam and wish to become licensed in North Dakota or candidates who wish to transfer to North Dakota and complete the exam under North Dakota.
To qualify under this provision, you must hold a CPA certificate, from a “substantial equivalency” state. A list of substantially equivalent states can be found at http://nasba.org/licensure/substantialequivalency/.
North Dakota law also allows for an individual to have personally attained substantial equivalency status.

standard, may obtain a reciprocal certificate upon showing they have:
1. Passed the Uniform CPA Examination
2. Acquired at least 4 years of experience that meets the requirements of Board rule, after passing the
Examination upon which their certificate was based, and within 10 years immediately preceding

initial certificate), the applicant has fulfilled the CPE requirements that would have been applicable
