Accounting Major Requirements

The accounting sequence, 128 credits, results in a four-year B.B.A. degree which prepares students to work in accounting in organizations such as service, banking and manufacturing.

If students desire to take the CPA exam and work as a Certified Public Accountant, an additional 22 credits are required. These extra credits can be in any area of study. Students can complete the additional requirements by taking extra courses during summer or J-term sessions, taking an overload during the regular semesters (over four full courses), or some combination of the above. 

Note that for existing SNC students, a maximum of three courses (9 to 12 credits) can be transferred into SNC. Courses taken at other qualifying institutions beyond the allowed can count toward the 150 credits.
