  1. Students interested in taking the CPA Exam in Nebraska must complete ACCT 4070.
  2. Students pursuing an accounting concentration who complete ACCT 3080 with a grade of C or better are not required to take the business core course MGMT 3100.

Concentration-related items:

  • A student may enroll only twice in any upper-division accounting course. You are enrolled in a course if your name appears on the final class list published immediately after drop/add week. Therefore, you may drop a course only one time (excluding drops during drop/add week). If you drop the same course twice (or receive any grade below a C twice), you will not be permitted to enroll in this course a third time.
  • A minimum GPA of 2.50 overall is required for enrollment in any upper-division (3000-level or 4000-level) accounting course.
  • Accounting courses at the 4000-level also require a minimum GPA of 2.50 in all upper-division accounting courses successfully completed at UNO to date (excluding ACCT 3000, ACCT 4500, and ACCT 4510).
  • Students who wish to contract to take upper-division accounting courses as “honors” courses should contact the course instructor.
