The Post Baccalaureate Certificate in Accounting (PBAC) program is designed for individuals who have earned a baccalaureate degree in a discipline other than accounting and who are seeking functional competency in the accounting field. The program is specifically related to the professional accounting area and should not, therefore, be considered as equivalent to the comprehensive business degree programs offered by ULM. Students completing this Certificate would have the required accounting courses necessary to sit for the Louisiana Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam. In addition to the course requirements of the PBAC shown below, the State Board of Certified Public Accountants of Louisiana also requires (1) a baccalaureate degree, (2) a minimum of 150 hours of college/university credit, and (3) 21 credit hours of non-accounting business courses. Those interested in pursuing eligibility for the CPA exam should review the specific Board requirements for eligibility. The State Board of Certified Public Accountants of Louisiana makes the final determination as to eligibility for the CPA exam.


  1. Baccalaureate Degree and Admission to ULM
  2. Completion of 6 credit hours of introductory financial and managerial accounting and 3 credit hours of business law
  3. Completion of each required course listed below with a minimum grade of “C” with
    at least 15 hours of the required courses completed while in-residence at ULM
