CPA Requirements: An Overview
Every year of university education in India is equivalent to 30-semester credits of US education. The education requirements for CPA exam eligibility vary across the boards of the different states or jurisdictions in the US, but the main requirement is that candidates must have completed either a bachelor’s degree or 120 college credit hours.
If you have a B.Com degree cleared in first division from a NAAC A accredited university, you will be entitled to an extra 30 credits taking your total credits to 120.
However, some states require that their candidates complete a minimum of 150 college credit hours to sit for the exam. For a typical bachelor degree holder, this means that 30 credit hours of extra courses are necessary. You’re good to go if you have any of the following qualifications:
B.Com + MCom/MBA equalling 150 credits
B.Com +CA/CS/CWA equalling 150 credits
How To Pick The Best CPA Review Course?
You will benefit greatly from what a review course provides. Try a review for one section. If you think you benefited from it, then plan to take another course. If not, try the next section on your own. The best information about review courses comes from those who have already passed. Recommendations from satisfied customers are powerful statements. Keep in mind that the methods used to pass the exam two or more years ago may now be out-of-date and instead, survey those who have passed the exam within the last eighteen months.
Because the certificate is easier to get, one may consider a certificate as the first-level. The license, or the permit to practice as a CPA, is the second level. In fact, A lot of international students aim only for the certificate because the CPA qualification is mainly used for the enhancement of their credentials.
Due to the confusion and some abuses that exist in the system, most states have switched from two-tier to one-tier.
