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 studentā€™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 UALRā€™s College of Business Department Chairs will make an evaluation as to whether any required course in a studentā€™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.
