The Certificate in Accounting Program (CAP) is designed for individuals who already have an undergraduate degree in a field other than accounting. The program consists of 7 courses (which must be completed while enrolled in the CAP). When combined with the prerequisite courses, graduates will have 27 hours of college-level accounting coursework required to sit for the CPA exam in Kentucky. Kentucky requires an additional 12 credit hours of college credit in business courses. Other states have different requirements. Information about those requirements can be obtained from the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (www.nasba.org).
