Most graduates of the Boise State Master of Science in Accountancy (MSA) program choose to pursue licensure as a CPA. All states, including Idaho, have a board that oversees the education requirements to sit for the CPA Exam and the rules for licensure.
Education requirements to sit for the CPA Exam vary by each state or jurisdiction’s Board of Accountancy. To obtain licensure as a CPA, all Boards of Accountancy require a minimum of 150 semester hours.
State Accountancy Boards determine the requirements for CPA licensure and it is important that you become familiar with the requirements for the state in which you expect to become licensed and practice. Information regarding each state’s licensure process can be accessed through the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) website. In Idaho, licensure is administered by the Idaho State Board of Accountancy.
Due to the variability in state requirements, Boise State University cannot guarantee that our MSA online program will fulfill all requirements in the state you plan to practice. It is your responsibility to seek guidance from the applicable accountancy board to understand your individual licensure requirements. Boise State University’s accounting degrees are designed to meet the CPA licensing requirements for the state of Idaho.
