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 120-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.
Beginning in Fall 2017 – our department will add Accounting 485 WWP, an online Special Topics course. In Fall 2017, the special topic will be CPA Review Preparation (Becker). Please contact Stella Helluin, Instructor of Accounting for more information – firstname.lastname@example.org.
