IF EXISTS(SELECT TABLE_NAME FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES
WHERE TABLE_NAME = 'TblTempCPA')
DROP TABLE TblTempCPA
GO

CREATE TABLE TblTempCPA
(

StudentNo Varchar(10) NOT NULL,
StudentName Varchar(100),
ExitReason Varchar(10),
CompletionSts Varchar(10),
CONSTRAINT pk_TblTempCPA PRIMARY KEY (StudentNo)
);

GO

bcp dbo.TblTempCPA in 'C:\Current_CPA_CTE.xlsx' -T

The error I am getting is -
Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 4
Incorrect syntax near '.'.


My excel sheet may have duplicate Studentno though. Is that the problem or BCP syntax?

BCP is a command line utility. You need to run it from a command window. If you want to run it from a query window in SSMS, you should use xp_cmdshell.
