1. Students are encouraged to take ACCT 160 if offered. Free electives may also be used to satisfy some requirements of minors and/or second majors.


2. Three credits of ACCT 497 fulfills one 3-credit undergraduate accounting elective, with the remaining combination of ACCT 497 and ACCT 397 credits representing free elective credits. Internships are not required, but are encouraged. Students who choose not to pursue full-time internship opportunities may substitute an undergraduate accounting elective and an open elective for the 6 internship and coop credits in this plan, and continue fulfilling to balance the 5-year plan with some shifting of courses across semesters to balance credit loads. For students electing full-time internships, online, summer, and/or courses offered in accelerated formats may be taken in the semester/summer following a full-time internship to balance credit loads.


Please Note: Students enrolled in the ABM Bachelor/Master of Accountancy program will be able to further accelerate this plan by using an additional 6 credits of graduate course work to fulfill undergraduate credit requirements.


Students in both the combined and AMB Bachelor/Master of Accountancy programs should consider the 150 credit requirement to sit for the CPA exam. Depending on the amount of credit earned prior to entering these programs, students may need to complete credits beyond those required by the degrees in order to meet the 150 credits required to sit for the CPA exam.


Students must complete enough electives to bring total credit hours up to the 125. Special Emphasis courses can fulfill an essential studies requirement (example-History 104, US History, will count toward the US Diversity as well as the Humanities area). Please Note: Every student must fulfill all University, Departmental, and Essential Studies requirements.
