The Texas State Board of Public Accountancy (TSBPA) requires CPA candidates to have completed 24 credits in related business subjects. The TSBPA divides related business subjects into nine categories. A maximum of 6 credit hours from any given category will qualify toward the needed 24 total credits. The Rice MAcc curriculum includes 9 credits, which are pre-checked below, that qualify as being ‚Äúrelated business‚ÄĚ (subject to the TSPBA's final approval). Therefore, incoming MAcc students need to earn the remaining 15 (=24-9) credits through your Rice undergraduate work. The TSBPA considers the Rice courses listed below as "related business."

Use this interactive tool to determine your progress toward meeting the related business subjects requirement. Check the boxes next to the Rice courses you have completed (or plan to complete).
