Students interested in the Integrated B.B.A./M.P.Ac. in Professional Accountancy will be required to complete a minimum of 150 semester credit
hours of degree credit. Of this total, 120 semester credit hours will be at the
undergraduate level and 30 semester credit hours will be at the graduate
level. The undergraduate course requirements are identical to those for the
non-integrated B.B.A. in Accounting, and the graduate course requirements
are identical to those for the M.P.Ac. Therefore, this five-year integrated
B.B.A./M.P.Ac. program has a true 4+1 modular structure.

Candidates for this program must meet the current admission requirements
for the M.P.Ac. program and be unconditionally admitted before taking any
graduate M.P.Ac. courses. The student must achieve a cumulative GPA of
3.00 or better in all undergraduate courses and a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or
better in all graduate courses.

A unique feature of the integrated program is that the student will begin taking graduate course work in his/her senior year. Upon successful completion of all 150 semester credit hours of this five-year program, the student will be awarded both the B.B.A. in Accounting and the M.P.Ac. degree at the same time; the student will not receive the B.B.A. in Accounting after
completing 120 semester credit hours at the undergraduate level.

Should a student decide not to complete the M.P.Ac. portion of the integrated program, then this student would simply have to complete any remaining degree requirements for the B.B.A. in Accounting in order to be awarded that degree. Because of the 4+1 structure of the integrated program, all of the undergraduate courses already completed as part of the integrated five-year program would count towards completion of the B.B.A. in Accounting.
