Walsh University Undergraduate Catalog 2012-2013
Up one level
The State of Ohio Accountancy Board requires candidates sitting for the Certified Public Accountant examination to document successful completion of 150 academic credit hours at either the undergraduate or undergraduate/ graduate level. Upon completion of Walsh University's accounting major requirements, students will have completed close to 125 credit hours for graduation. The CPA readiness addresses the 25 credit hour gap between Walsh accounting major requirements and the Ohio Accountancy Board requirements of 150 hours.
The DeVille School of Business developed several options. The additional hours could be applied towards a second major or minor. Also, three accounting electives are offered. A few suggestions are listed below.
The accounting major opting for the CPA Readiness Program would proceed through the accounting curriculum consistent with an accounting major without CPA aspirations. However upon graduation with the additional elective course work, the accounting major following the CPA Readiness Program would meet the Ohio Accountancy Board requirements to sit for the CPA exam.
