COURSES / DEGREE PLAN

The accounting curriculum provides specialized training for students who intend to enter public, private, governmental or not-for-profit accounting fields. The program also provides prerequisite courses for admission to graduate study.

Nicholls State University accounting graduates are qualified academically to take both the Certified Management Accountant and the Certified Internal Auditor exams. Students completing the 120-hour undergraduate accounting program are awarded a Bachelor of Science in Accounting.

The Louisiana State Board of Public Accountancy requires that an applicant hold a baccalaureate or higher degree and has earned specified hours in accounting and business courses as described in detail below to be eligible to sit for the Uniform Certified Public Accountant Examination. To become licensed, an individual must satisfy the 150-semester hour requirement before December 31st of the fifth calendar year following successful completion of the CPA exam.  The additional 30 semester hours can be taken at the undergraduate or graduate level.  Students may wish to consider getting a double major while working on the undergraduate accounting degree or pursue a Master of Business Administration (MBA) upon completion of the undergraduate accounting degree.  Students should consult with their academic advisor to help determine the best course of action.

The CPA requirements vary from state to state. If a student plans to seek certification in another state, the board of accountancy in that state should be contacted for specific requirements.

Students are assigned an academic adviser from within their disciplines who will be their primary source of information regarding academic requirements.   Advisers may assist with job placement, as well as provide information about graduate schools and internships.  Academic advising usually occurs for a 3 week period in February or March for the upcoming summer and fall semesters; a similar advising period in October/November is devoted for spring advising.  A week before the official advising period begins, an appointment sheet will be posted outside your adviser’s office door.  Students then sign up for an appointment at a time that is agreeable for both.  Advising outside of the predetermined period can be arranged via appointment

If  you are a graduating senior, you must schedule an appointment with your adviser.

  • Your adviser will have to approve you for graduation by completing a degree plan.
  • You will have to submit a completed College of Business Registration Schedule form to your adviser.
    • When completing the form, include at least one alternate section of BSAD 490.
    • Your adviser will submit your degree plan and COB Registration Schedule Form to the Department of Accounting & Finance Administrative Coordinator.
    • The Department Administrative Coordinator will register you into your classes on the first day of registration.  The Admin. Coordinator. for Management and Marketing will register you for BSAD 490.  She will do her best to get you into your first choice.
    • Please see your adviser asap so your registration form can be turned in.  Registration by the administrative coordinators is on a first come, first serve basis.

The name of your academic adviser can be found in Banner under General Student Information and will listed as the student’s Primary Adviser.  If you are new to our department and don’t yet have an accounting adviser, contact Mrs. Gina Lagrange (985-448-4176, gina.lagrange@nicholls.edu), administrative coordinator for the Department of Accounting and Finance.

Freshmen accounting majors are assigned advisers in the Academic Advising Center for their first year of classes.  However, they are also mentored by select CBA faculty to aid with their transition into college life.  College of Business mentors are full-time faculty members who were specifically chosen to assist freshmen in achieving  their educational and career goals as they progress through their courses. Freshmen should expect to be contacted by their mentors during their first semester; mentors are also listed in Banner as a freshman’s secondary adviser.  As students enter their sophomore year, mentors become a student’s academic adviser.

CAREERS

Accounting was ranked by CNN Money as one of the top three hottest college degrees for getting hired.Accounting graduates are prepared for careers in public, managerial and governmental or not-for-profit accounting (if you are currently looking for a position, click here for job postings).

PUBLIC ACCOUNTING

Public accounting firms (CPA firms) offer professional accounting and related services for a fee to clients such as corporations, partnerships, organizations, governmental entities and individuals. These services tend to fall into three broad categories: external auditing, tax services and management advisory (consulting) services.

External Auditing: Users of financial information, such as bankers and investors (the external users), are more confident about the fairness of a company’s financial statements when a team of independent auditors from a CPA firm have performed a detailed examination of a company’s accounting records.

Tax Services: Accountants also provide expert advice on tax planning to both individual and business clients. The objective of tax planning is to consider the effect that taxes have on various business decisions. Also, accountants prepare federal, state and local tax returns.

Consulting Services: Management advisory services comprise the fastest growing area for many accounting firms. Some of the services offered to clients include financial planning, accounting systems design, inventory control, budgeting, personnel administration and internal auditing.

MANAGEMENT ACCOUNTING

In contrast to public accountants who work in firms that provide services for many different clients, management accountants are employees of and provide accounting services for a single company or organization. Careers in management accounting can be both very challenging and financially rewarding. Management accountants may specialize in internal auditing, cost accounting, budgeting, information systems design, financial accounting and taxation.

GOVERNMENTAL OR NOT- FOR-PROFIT ACCOUNTING

Another career option for professional accountants is with governmental entities such as federal, state and city governments; or other not-for-profit organizations such as churches, hospitals, charities and schools. While governmental or not-for-profit accountants often work in a regulatory environment, frequently their job duties relate to the management of the receipt and disbursement of funds.

Degreed accountants may earn one or more professional designations, depending upon their career path and personal interests. Among the several designations available are the CPA, CMA and CIA.

Certified Public Accountant:

A CPA must meet various state educational and experience requirements in addition to passing the standardized examination prepared by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

Certified Management Accountant:

A CMA candidate must pass a series of standardized examinations prepared by the Institute of Management Accountants and meet other educational and experience requirements.

Certified Internal Auditor:

The Institute of Internal Auditors grants the CIA certificate to accountants after they have successfully completed the IIA examination and have met other requirements.
Nicholls State University accounting graduates are qualified academically to take both the CMA and the CIA exams. Students completing the 121-hour undergraduate accounting program are awarded a Bachelor of Science 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 take the CPA exam. Students are strongly encouraged to complete a double major or the Master of Business Administration program to satisfy the additional hours.
