CPA Certification

There are some important differences in the requirements for the CPA exam from one state to another. Students who wish to be certified in states other than Florida need to consult with the appropriate state board of  accountancy. The AICPA website (www.aicpa.org) is a good starting point for determining the requirements of each state.

In general, persons who wish to sit for the CP exam in Florida and most other states are required to complete at least 30 semester hours beyond the baccalaureate degree. Accordingly, many of our graduates satisfy the 30-semester hour requirement for the CPA by continuing on for a fifth year during which time they may also complete the requirements for either the Master of Professional Accounting or Master of Science in Taxation degree. Students interested in these programs should consult the Chair or the Program Director within the department.
