Accounting majors who want to work in public accounting should check out the CPA Information section when planning their schedules.
Accounting majors typically enroll in ACTG 20 in the spring of their second year or the fall of their third year, but they also have the option of taking it in the winter of their second year, concurrently with ACTG 12.
We encourage students to take ACTG 130 in the fall of their third year, unless they are studying abroad. If students study abroad in the fall, then they should take ACTG 130 in the winter of their third year.
Accounting 131 is typically taken the quarter following ACTG 130.
Many of our accounting students choose to study abroad. Our program is designed to allow majors to study abroad during the fall quarter of their junior year without falling behind in their required upper division accounting classes. We accommodate them by providing sections of ACTG 130 in the winter quarter and sections of ACTG 131 in the spring. Studying abroad will not inhibit a student’s ability to graduate on time nor become CPA eligible.
