BBA/MS and BA/MS Programs Satisfying the 150-Credit CPA Requirement

Since August 1, 2009, NYS regulations require 150 semester hours of approved course work in order to qualify for the CPA license.

The Stan Ross Department of Accountancy has received approval from the NY State Education Department to offer programs satisfying the new 150-hour requirement for licensing as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA).

The Department offers a number of approved options to satisfy this requirement. These include:
  1. a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in accountancy and a Master of Science (MS) in taxation or in accountancy,
  2. a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in a business discipline other than accountancy and a Master of Science (MS) in accountancy
  3. a Bachelor of Arts (BA) from the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences (in such majors as English, philosophy, political science, or an interdisciplinary program in languages and international business) and a Master of Science (MS) in accountancy
