and experience requirements in the jurisdiction in which they plan to work. All CPA candidates

Auditing and Attestation (AUD), Business Environment and Concepts (BEC), Financial
Accounting and Reporting (FAR), and Regulation (REG). While the CPA Exam is the same
for all candidates, other requirements may differ by jurisdiction. Students should check
with their specific Board of Accountancy for requirements in their state/jurisdiction. While
it is beneficial to earn a Certified Public Accountant license, it is only required
for graduates that are working in public accounting, the segment of the profession
