CPA Exam

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.

Our department added an Accounting 485 WWP course to the schedule of classes beginning in the Fall 2017 semester.  This is an online Special Topics course.  In the  Spring 2018 semester, the special topic is a Becker CPA Review Preparation course. Please contact Samantha Falgout, Instructor of Accounting for more information –
