Second Degree in Accounting

Students holding an undergraduate or graduate degree, in any area, may earn a B.B.A. in Accounting as part of a post-baccalaureate education. While the University requires a minimum of 30 hours in residence at UALR and completion of a course in U.S. History or U.S. Government as part of the student overall collegiate record at UALR or elsewhere, the actual number of hours required depends on the student’s educational background. Specifically,

1. Students with an undergraduate or graduate business degree from a college of business accredited by AACSB are required to complete a minimum of 30 at hours at UALR including the Accounting major requirements. As the Accounting major requires 30 hours in Accounting, a student with a business degree from an AACSB accredited college of business, including a U.S. History or U.S. Government course, but no additional accounting courses beyond Principles of Accounting I and II, would need to complete 30 hours in accounting at UALR to receive the B.B.A. in Accounting.

2. All others must complete the Pre-Business courses, the ProfessionalBusiness Studies Core Courses, and the 30 hours in the Accounting major. The UALR’s College of Business Department Chairs will make an evaluation as to whether any required course in a student’s previous programs is transferable and acceptable to complete a degree at UALR. Required courses with a prefix of 3000 or higher, completed at non-AACSB accredited college of business are extremely unlikely to be transferred.
