The BSBA in accounting is intended for students who aspire to enter the accounting profession in the private and public sector (e.g., governmental, internal audit, and managerial accounting positions). It is not intended to prepare students for professional certification as a certified public accountant. If professional certification as a certified public accountant is desired, then students should refer to the requirements for the MSA degree program. Students pursuing the BSBA in accounting must earn a minimum grade of C (2.0) in accounting courses to satisfy any upper-level accounting course prerequisites. Also, to graduate, students must earn a minimum grade of C (2.0) and a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 in all 3000- and 4000-level accounting courses taken.
Minimum degree requirement is 120 s.h. of credit as follows:
l. General education requirements including those listed below - 40 s.h.
Seniors must successfully complete the Senior Business Exam (SBE) in their last semester or summer term before graduation from the BSBA program. The SBE is administered near the end of each semester and summer term. Failure to successfully complete the SBE will result in the student being delayed from graduating in the BSBA program as this competency exam is a program requirement.
