Program overview

SLU students may choose to graduate from the accounting program with the 120-credit bachelor’s degree; however, those who plan to take the CPA examination will be required to complete 150 college credits as a prerequisite for taking the exam. Students may accumulate the 150 required credits in several ways: complete 150 credits at the undergraduate level; complete the 120-credit bachelor’s degree and complete the 30-credit Master of Accounting degree sequentially; or complete the Integrated Accounting Program, which allows you the opportunity to complete both the undergraduate and graduate degrees in accounting simultaneously. The GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) requirement for entry into the Master of Accounting program will be waived for accounting SLU undergraduates with a minimum 3.40 cumulative SLU grade point average (GPA). The Department of Accounting also offers an Accounting Scholars Program for qualified incoming freshmen. Students may also choose to pursue the accounting minor in addition to their chosen major.
