The Certificate in Accounting is offered through the Department of Accounting. Typically, students who pursue the Certificate are seeking an academic program of recognized quality that will help them prepare for careers in accounting. In combination with a bachelor’s degree earned at an appropriately accredited institution, the Certificate in Accounting meets the current minimum accounting educational requirements to sit for the Uniform Certified Public Accounting Examination in Indiana if students select the correct electives. Additional non-accounting business credits may be required.
Admission Admission to the Certificate program is limited to holders of bachelor’s degrees awarded by institutions that were accredited at the baccalaureate level by the Higher Learning Commission (or comparable regional association) at the time the degree was granted.
To enroll in the program, you must first be formally admitted to Purdue University Fort Wayne. You must provide the Purdue Fort Wayne admissions office with official transcripts documenting completion of your bachelor’s degree.
You must meet the prerequisites for each course and earn a grade of C- or better in each course, while maintaining at least a 2.30 GPA in courses required for the Certificate. You must complete at least 12 of the required 24-30 credits at Purdue Fort Wayne to be eligible to receive the certificate.
