CPA Exam Requirements and Pass Rates

CPA (Certified Public Accountant) Exam

Students taking the CPA (Certified Public Accountant) Exam in the years after 2009 complete 150 college credits in any combination of undergraduate and graduate courses in order to be licensed. Students may take the CPA Exam prior to earning 150 college credits. Such candidates, however, will not become licensed until they pass the examination, earn 150 college credits and acquire one year of qualifying accounting experience by being supervised by a CPA. For more information on CPA licensing requirements, please refer to the following websites: and CPA Exam policies should be reviewed and verified for changes periodically.
