Designed with you in mind.
Our accounting programs have been restructured to better prepare students to become Certified Public Accounts (CPAs). Most states, including Texas, require students to complete 150 credit hours (specified by state) before taking the Uniform Certified Public Accountant Exam. That means you will need a bachelor's degree (120 hours) and an additional 30 hours of upper-level credit to fulfill the requirements from the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy to sit for the CPA exam.
