*ACCT Elective 3 (4 Credits)
The courses ACCT 461 and ACCT 470 are designed to be senior level classes, therefore it is best to wait until your senior year in order to be fully prepared. While ACCT 470 has few prerequisites, most students feel more prepared later in the accounting program. Twelve credits of accounting electives are required and are best taken when available, prerequisites are met and to fill in when required classes are unavailable.
Most of the prerequisites for senior-level accounting courses are junior level courses. (The exception is ACCT 462.) Therefore, if you take all of the junior-level accounting courses during your junior year, you will have the prerequisites for all but one of the senior level accounting courses. Selection of electives depends upon the interests and career goals of the student.
