Admission to Flagler College – Tallahassee requires an Association of Arts degree or completion of 60 transferable college credits. (Students without an AA degree must fulfill Flagler’s general education requirements.)
Accounting majors who are considering sitting for the CPA exam are especially encouraged to complete a minor in finance and complete additional coursework offered to meet the exam requirements. Because BUS 301 & BUS 302 are part of the major requirements, accounting majors would only need four additional courses to complete the minor. These courses would typically be completed over the summer semester. A minor in marketing is also available, and only five additional courses would be required to complete that option.
