Accounting, B.S. (63 Credit Major)

To earn the B.S. in Accounting, a student must complete a total of 120 credits, 60 of which must be in liberal arts.

Effective Fall 2009, college CPA programs registered with the New York State Education Department must offer a curriculum consisting of a minimum of 150 credit hours. In line with this change, as of Fall 2009, the Department of Economics and Business offers, in addition to the B.S. in Accounting, an M.S. in Accounting program for those students who choose to take the additional 30 credits toward this graduate degree. However, specific admission requirements are in place to gain admittance to the M.S. in Accounting program. Contact the Department for details.

NOTE: All students are admitted to this major on a provisional basis. To maintain matriculation, the enrollees must attain a minimum cumulative index of 2.7 (B-) in the first four ACC-prefixed courses they will have taken at Lehman College at first trial. Students who fail to fulfill this condition will be removed from the B.S. in Accounting program. These students cannot switch to B.B.A.; however, they may switch to B.A. in Economics or B.A. in Accounting. These students may also count the previously taken ACC-prefixed courses toward a minor in Accounting.
