CPA Exam Preparation

The College of Business has partnered with CPAexcel® to offer CPA exam preparation at a significant discount to our eligible Accounting students. In addition, eligible students who pass all four parts of the CPA exam within twelve months of graduation can receive a 100% reimbursement of the discounted cost of the CPAexcel® Gold review course. Alternatively, eligible students who complete at least one section of the CPA exam within six months of graduation can receive a 50% reimbursement of the discounted cost of the review course.

Students must meet specific accounting and general business course requirements in order to qualify for the CPA examination in Michigan. See the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy for the official policies.

Accounting 4+1 Option

The Accounting 4+1 option allows students to earn both the BBA in Accounting and the Master of Science in Accounting at a substantial savings in time and money.

Students in the program may count three graduate accounting courses toward the BBA Accounting major and the MS-Accounting at the same time, thereby saving three courses. Students will receive scholarships to reduce the net cost of these three shared courses to undergraduate tuition rates.

The value of the course reduction and scholarships is more than $7,600, assuming part-time enrollment at resident tuition rates. Students must meet eligibility requirements.
