Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs

Neff Hall 366 - 260-481-6472

Note: The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Accounting (P.B.A.) is offered by the Department of Accounting and Finance. Typically, students who pursue the P.B.A. are seeking an academic program of recognized quality that will help them prepare for careers in accounting. In combination with a bachelor’s degree earned at an appropriately accredited institution, the P.B.A. meets the current minimum accounting educational requirements to sit for the Uniform Certified Public Accounting Examination in Indiana if students select the correct electives. Additional nonaccounting business credits may be required.

Admission Admission to the P.B.A. program is limited to holders of bachelor’s degrees awarded by institutions that were accredited at the baccalaureate level by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (or comparable regional association) at the time the degree was granted.

To enroll in the program, you must first be formally admitted to IPFW. You must provide the IPFW admissions office with official transcripts documenting completion of your bachelor’s degree.

Certificate Requirements Individuals interested in the P.B.A. program should check with either the department (Neff 350) or the school’s Student Affairs Center (Neff 366) for specific program requirements and further information.

Special Academic Regulations for P.B.A. Students

Performance Standards With the exception of the minimum GPA for retention, P.B.A. students are held to the performance standards specified for students in undergraduate business programs. See Business later in this part of the Bulletin.

Course Waivers You may be eligible for waivers of course requirements based upon academic courses taken as part of your bachelor’s program if those courses were completed within the past five calendar years.
