CPA Examination Eligibility

To be eligible to sit for the CPA Examination in Missouri and many other states, candidates are required to complete 150 credit hours of college level course work. Maryville offers several approaches to satisfy this requirement. One approach is to obtain degrees in both Accounting and Accounting Systems & Forensics. A second way to meet the 150-hour requirement is through the Early Access to the MBA Program, which allows a transition into the University’s MBA Program during the senior year. Further, students can complete the additional hours for CPA Exam eligibility by focusing on another discipline in addition to accounting. Students should contact their adviser for more information and guidance. For additional information regarding the CPA exam, go to
