A minimum of three courses (nine credits) constitutes full-time load at the graduate level. Two courses per semester (six credits) constitutes half-time load for graduate students (Fall and Spring). This applies as well to summer session I and II (inclusive). MSA students desiring to graduate in one calendar year will need to complete two courses (six credits) in each summer session and four courses (12 credits) during the Fall and Spring semesters.
CPE for CPAs, CMAs and Others
Not all accountants wish to complete an entire MBA or MSA degree program, although many may prefer to take one or more courses in order to meet CPE requirements or for their own personal or professional growth. To meet this need, practicing accountants may take one or more graduate-level accounting courses without becoming fully matriculated students. After six such courses are completed, with a "B" average, the student will receive a certificate indicating completion of a core of advanced-level professional accounting courses.
