The Texas State Board of Public Accountancy (TSBPA) is the state regulatory agency for public accounting in Texas. The State Board is the agency to contact with all official questions regarding CPA licensing, examination, continuing professional education (CPE) requirements, and enforcement.

Requirements for becoming a CPA varies in the United States. Every state and U.S. territory has somewhat different requirements for becoming a licensed CPA. Most states have education, examination and experience requirements and some have ethics requirements. The National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) can assist international students who have questions about qualifying to sit for the CPA Exam, how current foreign credits will transfer, or about equivalency issues.
