The Accounting Level II certificate program will comprise 36 credits, with no more than 6 credits allowed by way of transfer from another approved college. Level II program is open only to students who have achieved junior status, and have completed the appropriate Level I program, or to post-baccalaureate students. Students may be required to take prerequisite courses for any required courses in the certificate program.
The Level II certificate in Accounting, plus an earned baccalaureate degree or higher which together total at least 150 credit hours from an accredited college or university, provides the student with the coursework consistent with Pennsylvania’s education requirements to sit for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) examination (120 total credit hours) and, with the appropriate experience, to become licensed (150 total credit hours) as a CPA in Pennsylvania. For the most recent education requirements in Pennsylvania and other states, please consult the appropriate information on the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy’s website (www.nasba.org). It is incumbent upon the specific student, perhaps in consultation with his or her advisors, to ensure compliance with existing requirements since such requirements are always subject to change.
