Dr. C. Ford, Undergraduate Program Director
To earn a major in Accounting, a student must complete the six required courses with at least a “C” average (excluding ACC 2303 Financial Accounting and ACC 2304 Managerial Accounting). To enroll in ACC 3301 Financial Accounting and Reporting I and ACC 3303 Accounting Information Systems, a student must attain a “B” average in ACC 2303 Financial Accounting and ACC 2304 Managerial Accounting. There are two career track options:
- To qualify for professional certification as a Certified Public Accountant, a student must complete the six major requirement courses and should complete either the Master of Accountancy (M.Acc.) degree or the Master of Taxation (M.Tax.) degree. (See Graduate Catalog for details of graduate requirements.) A minimum of thirty accounting hours is required, which excludes the six accounting hours in the lower business core.
- To follow the four-year program, a student must complete the six major requirement courses listed below. Students who complete only the undergraduate degree are still eligible to complete additional education requirements to qualify to sit for the Certified Public Accountant Examination in Texas.
