The 15-unit Undergraduate Certificate in Accounting is designed for students who do not have an undergraduate accounting degree and is intended to enhance their accounting knowledge and expand their career opportunities. In addition, it may fulfill the education requirements to sit for the CPA or Certified Management Accountant (CMA) examinations.
Students must complete 9 of the 15 units of the program at Golden Gate University and must earn a minimum GPA of 2.0 “C” or better. However, students intending to apply to the Master of Science in Accounting Data & Analytics (MSADA) program must earn a grade of “B” or better in each of these courses, since they comprise the MSADA program’s foundation requirement.
See Certificate Program Admission Policies and Undergraduate Transfer Credit Policies for more information.
Course prerequisites are indicated in the course description for each course and must be satisfied prior to enrolling in a given course. Prerequisites may be satisfied through transfer of equivalent coursework from external institutions or by taking the courses at GGU.
