If you have your eyes set on the coveted CPA examination, you must also be aware of the eligibility criteria for international students. Besides the criteria that applies to US students, you also need extra qualifications and a plethora of documents to sail through. In this article, we seek to help Indian students make sense of the eligibility conundrum.
Criteria for Indian Students
The foremost point to know is that the CPA eligibility differs for each of the 55 states of the United States. In general, most states require the candidate to have any of the following qualifications:
- B.Com with M.Com
- CAs with B.Com (in some states)
- B.Com with Accountancy Masters
- B.Com with MBA
There are a few other scenarios too which can help you qualify for appearing in the exam. While in the US, a bachelor’s degree is sufficient to appear for the CPA, the criterion changes for India because B.A is a three-year-long course here, as compared to four years in the US. Therefore, to meet the requisite amount of college hours, an additional course/degree/work experience becomes essential.
