Special Academic Regulations for P.B.A. Students
Post-Baccalaureate Certificate students are held to the same performance standards specified for students in undergraduate business programs.
Credits from your undergraduate degree MAY be used for some of these requirements. Online courses offered through Indiana University Bloomington Division of Continuing Studies will not count toward the PBA certificate.
Current requirements to sit for the CPA Exam in Indiana require that you have completed a total of 150 credit hours; 24 credit hours of accounting courses including: financial accounting, auditing, taxation, and managerial accounting; and at least 24 credit hours of business and/or economics courses that are not accounting courses.
The Doermer School of Business does not play any role in determining if you meet the requirements to sit for the CPA Exam. The state board of accountancy makes that determination. So, if you have any questions about your total number of hours completed or whether specific courses will meet the requirements, you must contact them. The NASBA website, www.nasba.org can be very helpful. At their website, click on Exams, then CPA Exam, then choose Indiana. This site will give you all the current requirements for the State of Indiana as well as contact information.
