Accounting (ACC)

The objective of the baccalaureate degree program in accountancy is to provide students with accounting and business knowledge that will serve as a basis for careers in industry, government, non-profit organizations and public accountancy.

The baccalaureate program also prepares students for entry into the Master of Accountancy (M.Acc.) professional degree program.

The State of Florida, like most states, requires a fifth year of education in order to sit for the CPA examination. Questions concerning the CPA examination should be directed to the faculty of the School of Accountancy.

Requirements for the B.A./B.S. Degree: In addition to the non-business and business foundation courses listed in the General Requirements section, students must complete a minimum of 27 hours of upper-level accounting courses, of which 18 credit hours must be taken in residence at USF.

ACG 3103 Intermediate Financial Accounting I 3
ACG 3113 Intermediate Financial Accounting II 3
ACG 3341 Cost Accounting and Control I 3

The student’s program must also include course work taken in behavioral sciences and humanities, such as psychology, anthropology, and sociology, and the political environment of business and society, such as political science, public administration, and ethics. College of Business Administration advisors will recommend courses that will satisfy the program requirements.

Accounting majors can use the forgiveness policy only once in upper-level accounting courses. Accounting courses taken by accounting majors on an S/U basis will not be counted toward the 120-hour graduation requirement. Independent Research, ACG 4911, will not be accepted as credit toward the minimum degree requirements in the accounting concentration.

Accounting majors must earn a “C” (not C-) grade in each of the sequential upper-level accounting courses before being allowed to go on to the next course: i.e., ACG 3103, ACG 3113, ACG 3341, ACG 4632, and TAX 4001.

Requirements for a Minor in Accounting (for Business Majors Only): Students majoring in Business Administration may minor in Accounting. The requirements are:
