Upon the completion of this degree, students will have a total of 138-140 semester hours and 21 accounting hours (TSBPA does not include the Ethics course in the required acocunting hours). To be eligible to sit for the CPA exam, students must have a total of 150 hours and 30 accounting hours beyond the introductory courses. If desired, students may take three upper-level accounting classes as electives in the spring of their senior year to have enough accounting hours to sit for the exam. However, an additional 10-12 hours will still be required to sit for the CPA exam.

Students may wish to take an internship for credit during the Spring of their senior year. If so, only 9 total hours can be taken in the spring semester--one half of the semester is the internship for 3 hours and the other half will be comprised of two mini-term classes offered by the department of accounting and business law. Therefore, students will have to pick up additional hours in the summer to graduate.
