The Professional Studies in Accounting major is designed to provide students with educational opportunities to develop a solid foundation in accounting and financial practices and to provide additional coursework required for persons who wish to take the CPA examination.

Requirements for the Professional Studies in Accounting Major:


The Nebraska Board of Public Accountancy specifically mandates the completion of 150 college credits and outlines the required course content that must be included in those credits for persons who wish to sit for the CPA examination. The 150 credits may all be completed at the undergraduate level or may be a combination of undergraduate and graduate credits. To satisfy the requirements, students need to complete the major requirements listed above and the following courses: ACC 411 , ACC 415 , and ACC 435 .  Additional course recommendations to reach the 150 credit hour requirement include BUS 353 , CMS 316 , or additional 300/400 level Business course. 

Note to Transfer Students:

"Credits earned at a non-four-year institution shall NOT be considered as acceptable in meeting the educational requirement for the CPA examination unless those hours have been accepted for purposes of a degree by a four-year college or university, as defined in Title 288-Chapter 9-001 and 9-002." (Title 288, Nebraska Administrative Code, Revised and Substituted Rules of the Board). Thus, only those credits completed at a two-year institution and accepted in transfer by the four-year institution may be used to satisfy the educational requirement for the CPA examination.
