Certificate of Accountancy Program (CAP)

Accounting may not have been your first choice, but with CAP, it can be your best!

If you just lack a few hours to sit for the CPA exam, Lipscomb offers accounting courses through its Adult Degree Program and you can earn a Certificate of Accountancy. This 18-hour undergraduate level certificate provides the knowledge and understanding of accounting standards in an evening program. You can earn a Graduate Certificate in Accountancy by taking 12 graduate-level hours.

Program Format and Details

The CAP program consists of six required undergraduate courses for a Certificate in Accountancy. Additional courses are offered to complete the necessary hours for the CPA Exam. AC 2503 is required for students who have not successfully completed any accounting courses and is recommended for students who have not taken university-level accounting courses within the past two years. In order to waive AC 2503 you must get permission from the CAP program director.

Students must earn a minimum GPA of 2.0 to earn a Certificate of Accountancy from Lipscomb.
