CPA Examination

Coupled with an undergraduate accounting degree or an appropriate number of accounting credits, Fisher College of Business MAcc degree may provide you with sufficient business and accounting credits to sit for the CPA exam in those states that have enacted the "150 hour rule."

If you plan to take the exam in Ohio, please refer to the Accountancy Board of Ohio for specific rules. Graduates of the Fisher MAcc program are eligible to sit for the exam in the state of Ohio. If you wish to sit for the CPA exam in another state, check with that state board's of accountancy for the exam regulations.

Please note any external CPA review course is not mandatory for MAcc students; therefore, all costs associated with an external CPA review program are incurred by the student as an expense separate from the MAcc tuition and fees. Many employers of MAcc students, especially those in public accounting, will help subsidize the cost of a CPA review course.
