Karen Cravens, Chapman Professor of Accounting

The Certificate in Accounting program prepares individuals for entry-level accounting positions and professional certification examinations, such as the Certified Management Accountant and Certified Internal Auditor examinations, and enhances accounting knowledge necessary for advancement in existing positions.

Those admitted to this program must either hold a bachelor’s degree or have sufficient coursework for junior standing at The University of Tulsa. Certification requires that students complete 24 credit hours in accounting with a minimum grade point average of 2.0.

Candidates for the CPA examination in Oklahoma must have at least 150 semester hours of college credit, of which 76 semester hours must be upper-division courses and 30 semester hours must be accounting courses above the principles or introductory level, including one course in auditing. Similar 150-hour requirements apply to candidates taking the CPA examination in other states and jurisdictions, yet candidates must verify that they meet specific requirements for the state in which they choose to take the exam.


Prerequisites are required for many of the courses required for the Certificate in Accounting.
