Does it make sense to go for a Masters or should I just study for the CPA exam and take a few classes at a community college to accumulate the 150 credits? I graduated college with 132 credits so I don’t need that much more.

Hi everyone! currently i’m an undergrad majoring in accounting. I’m thinking abt hitting that 150 credits by doing a master degree. Should i study my Masters in Accounting or something related to Tech? Do that extra 30 credits need to be something related to Acct to sit for the CPA exam? What would be an ideal master to pair w a bachelor in accounting? I’m an international student so i hope i would find a job that’s going to sponsor H1B visa! Thank you~

Can any recent grad who has started or passed the CPA exam give me advice on how to go about the exam process/the timeline of it all? I graduate with 150 in May and plan to test in Virginia. I’m unsure when to start studying and when to apply to take the exam. I want to test as soon as I can once I graduate but I’m worried I might miss a deadline or get pushed back due to application processing time.

With the new CPA format coming in late 2023/early 2024, does anyone know if existing credits will be transferred over? Say, for example, you have 2 exams passed before the CPA Exam changes (AUD and FAR), would the credit Transfer over as long as your 18 months don’t expire, or would you lose credit and be forced to start over?

Hi- please help me understand!

I recently passed all 4 sections of the CPA exam. I am currently in Michigan state but applied for the exam through Alaska state. Now I want to transfer my scores from AK to MI and need to know the process. I do not meet MI educational requirements (don't have tax and audit credits). If I transfer scores from AK to MI and apply for license in MI, will I get the license or MI will ask to complete the educational requirements. I dont want to take the CPA exam again

One of my classmates told me that the CPA exam will have a huge change in 2024, they will do three exams, and one is your choice. Is that right? What would happen if I took the CPA at the end of 2023?
