TWU Ranks High In CPA Exam Pass Rates

4/22/02


DENTON —Texas Woman's University students outpaced most other Metroplex universities on the 2001 CPA exams, placing eighth out of 41 Texas schools.

The results of the May and November CPA exams showed TWU with a 31.94 percent pass rate. Texas Christian University was the only other area university to rank in the top 10.

The CPA exam is comprised of four parts: business law, auditing, accounting and reporting and financial accounting and reporting. Candidates for the exam must have a bachelor's or graduate degree and must meet additional criteria, including completion of at least 150 semester hours of courses recognized by the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy.

Dr. Paula Ann Hughes, chair of the TWU School of Management, said she was pleased with the results.

“The accounting major is an important focus for our school,” she said. “We are preparing students for leadership roles in this profession, and passage of the CPA exam is the hallmark of quality in this profession.”
