Professional Licensure Disclosures: Accounting

Professional licensure requirements vary from state to state. Students who intend to pursue professional licensure outside of the State of Minnesota should contact the appropriate agency to seek guidance and information confirming licensing requirements.

Students should be aware that licensure requirements are subject to change periodically and may include educational or degree requirements, professional examinations, background checks, character and fitness qualifications, work experience, fingerprinting, and other requirements.

The University of St. Thomas studies in accounting prepare students to sit for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam in 38 states; 17 states require coursework outside the St. Thomas degree plan.
