The accounting program at UW-Whitewater is designed to prepare accounting majors to begin their career as professional accountants in any area of their choice—public accounting, industrial accounting, or governmental accounting. All of the programs in the College of Business and Economics at both the graduate and undergraduate levels are accredited by the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business. Accounting graduates are qualified to sit for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) examination and all other professional accounting certification examinations. In the State of Wisconsin all applicants to sit for the CPA exam who graduate after December 31, 2000 will be required to have completed an accounting program with 150 credits of selected coursework. At UWW we have designed an integrated 150 credit program culminating in a masters degree, Master of Professional Accountancy (MPA), to fulfill the new requirements.
NOTE 1: An accounting major may repeat no more than two accounting courses.
NOTE 2: Any accounting course may be one of the two repeats even if the original grade received was a "C" or better. For purposes of the grade point requirement in accounting the repeat grades will be used
NOTE 3: No one accounting course may be repeated more than once.
