BSAc Student Resources
The Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting (BSAc) is a four year program that provides an excellent foundation in accounting and business. Its conceptual focus is designed to prepare students for success in a constantly evolving business environment and to also prepare students for graduate studies.
Students are cautioned that completion of the BSAc degree alone will not satisfy the eligibility requirements to sit for the Uniform Certified Public Accountant Exam or to practice as a CPA in the State of Florida. Students aspiring to a career in professional accounting should plan on seeking admission to the 3/2 Program. For information regarding eligibility to sit for the CPA exam for all 50 states, visit the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy.
Success in the BSAc program requires a thorough understanding of all program requirements. The links that follow will assist you to develop a plan of study. Our Student Handbooks and guides discuss all academic policies and procedures applicable to the BSAc program. It is critical that you familiarize yourself with these requirements. To avoid delays in graduation, students are encouraged to meet with an academic advisor to confirm their plan of study satisfies all program requirements.
Policy and Procedures Handbooks and Guides
When downloading the Handbook, make certain to select the version of the handbook that applies to your catalog year and class standing. This is important to consider because some policies and procedures change from one academic year to the next. However, the policies and procedures that apply to you do not change and are based upon your unique catalog year.
Generally, for undergraduate students, your catalog year is the academic year that you were first admitted to UF. If you are not sure what your catalog year is, please see your advisor.
