  • CPA Forms

    The curriculum in the undergraduate accounting program provides many of the foundational requirements for professional certification as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Certified Management Accountant (CMA) or Certified Internal Auditor (CIA).

    A CPA is a certified public accountant and is licensed by the state. To earn a CPA license in In California, individuals are required to demonstrate their knowledge and competence by passing the uniform CPA Exam.

    If you have additional questions about CPA requirements, visit the California Board of Accountancy or the CalCPA. If you have questions about how UCR courses fit into the CPA requirements, schedule an appointment with your assigned academic advisor.
