When I was looking to finish the required credits to be able to sit in Florida for the CPA, I looked into DETC Universities which were not many schools with accounting programs, that was about 6 years ago. I looked at California National University for Professional Studies, I did not know about the Fla requirements back then, but I started to research. The CNU downside was that costed as much as RA MBA, the cost plus knowing that I would have a hard time getting this degree thru the Accounting Board made me select a RA for my accounting needs. But Florida however will allow people with an unacredited degree but are several steps that will need to follow: From the Florida Board of Accountancy Accreditation The Board accepts degrees from schools accredited by the following associations : Middle States Association, New England Association, North Central Association, Northwest Association, Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges, Association of Independent Schools and Colleges who have been approved by the Florida State Board of Independent Colleges and Universities, and Canadian Schools who have been approved by their provincial educational bodies. If you have graduated from a school or college which is not accredited by the above mentioned means, then you must use the provisions of F.A.C. 61H1-27.001 (5) (see below). Applicants Who Have Graduated from Non-Accredited Schools (61H1-27.001) (5) Applicants who have graduated from a non-accredited school may still qualify to sit for the CPA examination. The candidate must take 15 semester hours of graduate classes. With at least nine hours of graduate level accounting courses to include three semester hours of graduate tax. THESE HOURS MUST BE TAKEN AFTER ADMISSION TO GRADUATE SCHOOL. If the courses are taken before admission to a graduate program, the classes will not be accepted, even if the school includes them as part of the graduate program. These courses cannot duplicate other courses which the applicant has taken and they cannot be used to accredit the non-accredited degree and satisfy the educational requirements. The applicant must complete the graduate school courses to validate the non-accredited degree. The applicant must also meet all other requirements for endorsement or transfer of credit. An evaluation of foreign transcripts must be completed by an evaluation service which has been approved by the Board (see Board Approval Evaluation Services).
