New CPA Requirements Worksheet

The CPA Board has created a handy worksheet designed to assist accounting students in evaluating the progress they’ve made toward meeting the new CPA Licensure educational requirements.

Use the worksheet below to determine how many classes you have completed and how many you still need to take. Refer to the Tip Sheet that lists all of the classes they require as you go:

Not sure where you can take classes to meet all the requirements? Unfortunately, you can’t meet all the new requirements at UCSD.  Additional course work can be completed by obtaining a Masters Degree in Accounting or by taking additional courses at a community college or at a continuing education program such as UCSD Extension.

Find more information about CPA Licensure and find FAQs on the California Board of Accountancy website.
