Accounting Classes at New York University


S

supersecret2u

NYU Continuing Education and Professional Studies offers the complete
lineup of classes needed to sit the CPA exam. Yet they don't say that
these classes are "licensure-gualifying" for the New York CPA exam.
This means to me they do NOT qualify. Yet they certainly look like they
should. These are not classes for the curious or idle housewife, but
rather appear to be college level accounting courses.

Does anybody know for sure one way or the other?

Please... "Contact the school or the state" is NOT an answer to my
question. If you do not KNOW the answer please don't post to this
question. If you know NOTHING about NYU Continuing Education and
Professional Studies, the accounting classes they offer, what the state
requires etc. then PLEASE don't post an answer. If your answer is
"Generally continuing education courses don't count." I already know
that and anybody else asking this question probably already knows that.
BECAUSE I ALREADY KNOW THAT IS WHY I'M ASKING THE QUESTION! I am
looking for a YES or a NO answer with your reasons for giving that
answer. Thank you.

That's because they are not.

God, you catch on quick.


Yet they certainly look like they should.

It's wishful thinking.

They are continuing education classes. Some even are billed as "workshops".

Does anybody know for sure one way or the other?


For sure. NO.


Please... "Contact the school or the state" is NOT an answer to my
question.

It's a quite valid answer. Just one you don't want to hear for some queer
reason.



If you do not KNOW the answer please don't post to this
question.

The answer you don't want to hear is ------ NO.

Have you consulted the New York Board website?

-------------------------------------

Education Requirements
To fulfill the education requirement for licensure, you must complete:

a.. an accounting program registered by the Department as
licensure-qualifying, or
b.. a program determined by the Department to be equivalent to a
registered program, or
c.. 15 years of public accounting experience acceptable to the State Board
for Public Accountancy.
For a listing of current licensure qualifying programs see the NYS Education
Department's Inventory of Registered Programs. Please Note: if your program
is not listed, contact your school to determine if it is a NYS licensure
qualifying program.

The curriculum requirements can be met by courses at the undergraduate or
graduate level or by any combination of the two. You must have an overall
average in the accounting subjects of "C" or better at the undergraduate
level and "B" or better at the graduate level. Courses in federal taxation,
professional auditing and advanced financial accounting must be taken at the
upper division level (third or fourth year of an undergraduate program) or
in a higher degree program. All prerequisite accounting courses must be
completed before these courses are attempted.

BECAUSE I ALREADY KNOW THAT IS WHY I'M ASKING THE QUESTION!


I KNOW what the website says. And it reads "accounting program registered
by the Department as licensure-qualifying" or "a program determined by the
Department to be equivalent to a registered program" and it mentions
"undergraduate" and "graduate" level courses, which means CREDIT courses,
not some con-ed class or "workshop" where - at best - you get a
"certificate" in "bookkeeping". That does NOT qualify you to sit for the
CPA exam.


What part of ~NO~ are you not grasping.



I am looking for a YES or a NO answer with your reasons
for giving that answer. Thank you.

You're trolling for a yes, but the answer is NO. Because the website
says so.


But, feel free not to believe me.


212-998-7200 - call them as prove me wrong.



Here's the NY State Code on the topic:

http://www.op.nysed.gov/article149.htm
§ 7404. Requirements for a license as a certified public accountant.
1.. To qualify for a license as a certified public accountant, an
applicant shall fulfill the following requirements:
1.. Application: file an application with the department;
2.. Education: have received an education, including a bachelor`s or
higher degree based on a program in accountancy, in accordance with the
commissioner`s regulations;

I started a new thread hoping you might leave me alone.

But I see it's just not going to happen.

You fancy yourself some sort of troll or self-appointed group master or
something?

I'm trying to ask a question and all I get is you and your immature
opinion based simply on the fact that these classes are offered in the
school of continuing education.

I do not wish to hear from you. What part of that do YOU not
understand? You sound and act like you are in high school for
Christ's sake.

I would like to hear from someone who actually has attended these
classes, NYU etc. and actually knows something about them. Haven't I
made that clear?

I do not want to hear from you and your "real degree" childishness.
Okay? I promise you I have more real degrees (4) than you have and
can also probably buy and sell you before breakfast to boot. (1MM+)

So PLEASE! STOP POSTING ON MY THREADS. NOW AND FOREVER!

Actually it's based on what the NY State Board says.



I do not wish to hear from you.

That's only because I do not carry the "good" news that you want to hear.


I would like to hear from someone who actually has attended these
classes, NYU etc. and actually knows something about them.


Well, for some odd reason, you are reluctant to call the school and - like -
actually talk to someone who would know for sure.


I do not want to hear from you and your "real degree" childishness.

Whatever.



I promise you I have more real degrees (4) than you have and
can also probably buy and sell you before breakfast to boot.

But you can't pick up the phone to call the school and ask them.
Interesting.


So PLEASE! STOP POSTING ON MY THREADS. NOW AND FOREVER!

Whatever.

I'd say that he's basing his opinion on FACTS posted at the NY State
Board's site. That qualifying courses are offered through an accredited
program, and if you look one measly layer deeper, you'd see that at NYU
only the degree-granting programs are accredited.
I would like to hear from someone who actually has attended these
classes, NYU etc. and actually knows something about them. Haven't I
made that clear?
Then why NOT contact the school? The odds of a former NYU CE student
reading here are very low. Plus, *anyone* can claim to have taken
classes there... there's very little you can do to corroborate it, as
compared to going straight to the source.
So PLEASE! STOP POSTING ON MY THREADS. NOW AND FOREVER!
You'd do well to learn how to apply filters to newsgroup postings. And,
for the record, DejaNews is itself just a portal, so claiming that
DejaNews is a waste is like claiming Yahoo or Google is a waste. They
provide a web-friendly interface to access of Usenet and other newsgroup
networks. Just an FYI for you and your four degrees (gee, trumps my 2)
and $1M+ income (wayyy trumps mine).

I have to have serious doubts as to claims of four degrees and >$1M income
for someone with an inability to call the school and ask.

I have clients that have a high-school education and buss tables for a
living that know how to pick up the phone to get the information they need.
