The Accounting Program will help students develop the skills and competencies necessary to be successful on professional examinations. The requirements to sit for the CPA exam differ from state to state. Under current West Virginia law, CPA applicants may sit for the exam with a baccalaureate degree and completion of specific accounting and business courses. To become a licensed CPA the candidate must not only pass the exam, but also meet the 150 hour education and the experience requirements. Those specific requirements can be found at the West Virginia Board of Accountancy. Students may sit for the Certified Management Accountant examination by completing requirements for the baccalaureate accounting program. Students should consult with their academic advisor.
