Accounting

In compliance with federal regulations and the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA) rules, this list of state licensing authorities, contact information and applicable disclosures is provided to ensure you have the information you need if you are planning to enter a field that may involve licensing in your state. This information will be updated annually.

If there is no listing for your area of study in your state or territory, it means we have not found any indication that such licensing exists. However, states that do not license a given occupation now could institute licensing in the future. Be sure to check back from time to time.

However, 30 semester hours of additional upper-level coursework beyond the bachelor’s programs are required to obtain the CPA license in Florida, once the candidate has successfully passed the exam. Courses in the MBA Accounting and MBA Accounting and Finance count toward the additional 30 semester hours of upper-level coursework required. Courses in the MS Accounting and Financial Forensics provide the full 30 semester hours of upper-level coursework required.
