AZ as well and my extra credits were mostly finance and French. No acct masters program, so I don’t think it matters. Best to double check the state board site or send them a quick email. They’ve always been pretty responsive/friendly.

Usually any high level credits, but recommend checking your states specific requirements. Some states require things like an ethics course.

Accounting credits I believe

I got a degree in Accounting and Philosophy and didn’t need a MAcc

https://www.azaccountancy.gov/Certification/FAQs.aspx#Q4

This should help. Email the board if you're concerned about having enough credits. They are there to assist.

You need 30 hours in upper-level accounting courses, including Auditing, Taxation, Cost/Managerial, and Financial.

Sorry, transferring to the US and I'm a bit confused regarding the FINRA exams.

Are we required to take the SIE, Series 7, Series 63, Series 79?

My offer letter says my employment is contingent on the Series 63 and 79 registrations. It also says Canadians will need SIE/Series 7 top off and I'm Canadian. But it looks like IB just requires the SIE and 79..? HR isn't very responsive.

TIA
