150 Credit Hours CPA Requirements Information
Those seeking to become a Certified Public Accountant have unique qualifications they must complete. In addition to passing the Uniform CPA Examination, and one year experience, candidates must also take a grand total of 150 college credits at an accredited institution before they become a CPA. That includes candidates receiving at least a bachelor’s degree with courses in auditing, accounting principles and general business.

While some students may opt for a master’s degree to reach that 150-credit threshold, students have the choice of enrolling at Schoolcraft College to complete their additional coursework, a process that can save students thousands of dollars over taking classes at a four-year college or university.
Students can also take any credit courses to complete the requirement, so those seeking to complement their accounting degree can learn additional skills like communication, business and more.
Classes can be taken in-person at our Livonia campus or online through Distance Learning. Contact an advisor today about how to enroll at Schoolcraft College to take courses to complete your CPA requirements.
