To Declare Accounting Major

If you are interested in becoming a Certified Public Accountant, you would have to choose the Advanced Accounting track to be on a path to that career. This program, plus another 30 credits, such as the Master of Science in Accounting at QC, would fulfill the educational requirements needed to become a CPA. The applicant would also need to fulfill the experience requirement of the applicable state board of accountancy and pass the CPA exam to become certified. Declaration of major is a process that takes time and planning. Students should start early enough to complete it before the next registration deadline.
