I'm in the state of California. I have all the requirements for licensing (all 5 tests passed, college degree, all the accounting classes needed, expereince signed off, etc). I was about to submit my docs, but was told that I needed 23 quarterly units more (I have 201ish vs the 224ish needed) otherwise I would be rejected... I was told starting on the 1st of this year that they changed the requirement, I was told to go back to school to take 23 units of ANYTHING (cooking, tennis, any BS class) which I found extremely odd since I have my degree in accounting from a Cal State and all the other requirements.

Can anyone provide some imput if that is really correct? PLEASE don't make assumptions if you do not know. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!!!

passing the CPA exam

I finished an Undergraduate Certificate program from an online college this year. Although I took upper division Accounting courses (except Auditing and Tax Accounting - but I'm studying it independently), I don't have a BS degree from this college. However, I want to pass the CPA exam even if I can't be a licensed CPA because I don't meet the educational requirement. Is this a good idea? Why or why not. I don't want to waste my time if it's not a good idea. :confused:

I became a CPA in California in 1989. Looks like getting certified is getting much harder. :(
