The Accounting Certificate program is designed to meet the needs of individuals who already hold a bachelors degree in another area, whether in business, or outside of business, and who now wish to acquire accounting competence. Regularly matriculated students who complete the required courses, or show evidence of having done so elsewhere, with a grade point average of no less than 2.5 may earn the certificate; however, at least four of the eight accounting curriculum courses must be taken at CSU, Dominguez Hills.
This certificate meets the CPA educational requirements. For more information about CPA requirements view the CPA LICENSING APPLICANT HANDBOOK
