CPA Exam Success
Passing the CPA Exam is an important milestone in your career, and our focus is on your exam success - not just preparation. USC MACC students' CPA exam pass rate far exceeds the national average. Our students are able to study for and pass the exam during our program, giving them the opportunity to dive into their careers one step ahead.
Focus on the Exam
To graduate from our MACC program, you must pass our Professional Exam Competency (PEC) requirement. You can complete the PEC by passing our simulated CPA exam or by taking the actual CPA exam. We encourage you to use our simulated PEC as a study aid towards passing the CPA, and then use your passing CPA scores to fulfill the degree requirement.
Tools to Succeed
We give you the flexibility to use CPA exam review materials that best suit your learning style, and also provide you access to several tools to assist you in passing the exam..
CPA Exam Content Mapping to Curriculum
All of our students receive our mapping of MACC prerequisite courses, core courses and electives that correspond to each of the four sections of the CPA exam. This allows you to plan when to take each section of the exam based on your completion of the courses that cover all of the relevant content covered on that particular section.
Suggested CPA Exam Completion Dates
We provide suggested completion dates for the four sections of the CPA exam based on your desired graduation date. This allows you to spread out the exam across your MACC experience instead of trying to complete all four sections in the summer before you begin your new job.
If you want a more structured environment to ensure your timely progression of passing the CPA exam, we offer Becker CPA Exam Review's FastPass. FastPass is a highly focused CPA exam review "boot camp" that concentrates your CPA exam review efforts. FastPass is available a la carte per section, and for no additional cost if your hiring firm provides Becker CPA Exam Review materials for you (most firms that hire our MACC students do provide this). Our FastPass allows you to complete one part in January, another is spread throughout the spring semester, the third is completed in May, and the fourth runs in late June. Through FastPass, you will have completed all four parts of the CPA by the beginning of July.
Access to Free CPA Exam Review Materials
Most firms hiring our MACC students provide CPA exam review materials as a part of their employment offer. If you work for a firm that does not, we provide access to free CPA exam review materials that can be checked out from the MACC library.
Scholarships and Discounts for CPA Exam Review Materials
Most firms hiring our MACC students provide CPA exam review materials as a part of their employment offer. If you work for a firm that does not, we provide scholarships that significantly reduce the cost of Becker CPA exam review materials, as well as other discounts for CPA Excel and Gleim CPA exam review systems.
