    Students enrolled in the BSAc program are eligible to submit an application for early admission to graduate school via the school's combined 3/2 Program. Students who complete this combined program meet eligibility requirements to sit for the Uniform Certified Public Accountant exam and to practice as a CPA in Florida.

    Some students enter the Fisher School of Accounting with the intention of limiting their accounting studies at UF to undergraduate coursework. These students view the BSAc degree as providing valuable preparation for post-graduate studies in areas other than accounting (e.g., law) or may intend to complete graduate accounting studies at another institution.
