This is the first version of the 2024–25 General Catalog. Please check back regularly for changes. The final edition and the historical PDF will be published during the fall semester.

The accounting program draws on curricula that provide a strong base of traditional technical subject matter and the skills needed for solving complex business problems. This framework of study enables students to continue professional growth over the entire span of their careers. The program emphasizes communication skills and provides the academic background required for leadership positions in business, government, and public accounting. It can also qualify students to take the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) examination.

Students who wish to earn the Bachelor of Business Administration with a major in accounting must be admitted to the Tippie College of Business. Undergraduate accounting majors are subject to the probation and dismissal rules described in the Bachelor of Business Administration section of the catalog and are governed by the Tippie Honor Code.
