Notes on the Accounting Requirements
- At least half of the accounting (ACCT) courses must be taken at the University.
- Students must pay careful attention to course prerequisites; not doing so could delay progress through the program.
- Accounting majors may not declare a minor in management.
- If accounting majors wish to minor in finance, not all of the courses used to meet the minor requirements may be embedded in the major. At least one course taken for the minor must be distinct from any course used to meet a major requirement in accounting.
