The 150 hour rule stipulates how many semester hours must be earned before a candidate can sit for the CPA exam.

How can you make the 150 Hour Rule work for you?

The accounting department strongly recommends that students apply to our Masters of Science in Accounting programs. Currently, an undergraduate degree in accounting at UNO requires 120 hours and the graduate degree requires 30 hours, combining the two programs totals 150 hours.

What if I don't qualify for the Masters program?

Students who do not qualify for the Masters program should consider the Pre- CPA Program.
