Bridge the gap between BA and CPA

Earn thirty credits and qualify for CPA licensure

Plus-30 Program for Accounting Graduates

The Plus-30 Program is an online post-baccalaureate credit-completion program designed for students with a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting to “close the gap” toward the 150 credit-hour requirement for CPA licensure. The program allows students who have already met the CPA’s general business and accounting coursework through a completed Accounting degree to earn any additional credit hours needed to reach 150 that remain after their baccalaureate study.


A CPA license requires at least 150 semester hours of education with the right blend of advanced accounting and business coursework. Since the average bachelor’s degree only gets you to 120 hours, those extra 30 have to come from somewhere. This is where they come from.  

Students admitted to the Plus-30 Program may select any undergraduate course offering for which they meet the course criteria and have not already earned college credit in the course of their baccalaureate degree program. The Plus-30 Program grants credit hours only, and does not confer any credential upon completion of the credit hours needed to reach the 150 total.
