Accounting: Make Your Future Count!

Certificate of Advanced Accountancy

The Accounting Area is pleased to offer our Certificate of Advanced Accountancy and Plan of Study. The plan and certificate are designed to offer Purdue Undergraduate Accounting majors an educationally sound approach to meeting the educational requirements to sit for the CPA Exam. Since each state has different educational requirements to sit for the CPA Exam, we strongly recommend that you go to the relevant state CPA Society’s website for details on the requirements for the state(s) you are considering. 

For those interested in taking the CPA exam in Indiana, the educational requirements are available for download here either as a .pdf file or as a WordPerfect document.  The Indiana CPA Society has developed a brochure that explains what you need to know to become a CPA in Indiana.   The link to the Indiana CPA Society's website is here. Additional CPA candidate information is available from the Society here.  The July 2013 CPA candidate bulletin available from NASBA-AICPA is available here.  The 2013 AICPA Exam digital brochure is here.
