State Board CPA Exam

Any student considering taking the Uniform Certified Public Accountant (CPA) examination should contact the State Board of Certified Public Accountants of Louisiana, (504) 566-1244, to get a complete copy of the examination requirements and information. The requirements may change. The School of Continuing Studies serves both students who wish to prepare for the State Board CPA Exam while they earn a degree as well as students who already have a degree but lack the specified accounting and/or business courses.

In order to sit for the State Board CPA Exam, a student must have earned a bachelor's degree from an accredited institution, have earned 150 semester credits as prescribed by the Louisiana CPA State Board Rules, including 24 credits of business courses, with an acceptable Business Law course (BSBL 345 Commercial Law), and must complete 24 credits of specific accounting courses.
