A Certified Public Accountant must meet various state educational and experience requirements in addition to passing the standardized examination prepared by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
Students completing the 121-hour undergraduate accounting program are awarded a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting. Upon completion of an additional 29 hours of study, the student meets the educational requirement of 150 hours currently set forth by the Louisiana State Board of Certified Public Accountants to sit for the CPA exam. Students are strongly encouraged to complete a double major or the MBA program to satisfy the additional hours.
