Center for Accounting Research and Technology
What is CART?
The Center for Accounting Research and Technology (CART) is the new home for students and faculty of the Department of Accounting and Taxation at the Tobin College. The Center is dedicated to our student's success on the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam.
We are here to help you register for the exam, review for the exam and pass the exam. In the near future, CART will offer a computer lab with CPA exam review software and accounting packages, tutoring hours, space for research and group work and much more.
What services do we offer?
CART is pleased to offer CPA exam advisement for all students in a CPA licensure-qualifying program and alumni from the most recent graduating class. We will help you register for the CPA exam and come up with an action plan to successfully pass all four parts of the exam which includes a review program and any additional tutoring you might need.
What CPA review programs do we offer?
We offer current students (BS Accounting, BS/MS Accounting, BS/MS Tax, BS/MBA Accounting, MS Accounting, MBA Accounting) and alumni from the most recent graduating class (from the aforementioned programs) the ability to participate in the CPA Review Reimbursement program. The purchase price is $1,625 and students will be reimbursed $400 after passing each part of the CPA exam, as long as that part is passed on the first attempt. Therefore, if all four parts are passed on the first attempt, the net price to students is $25.
Participants may select from the following three review providers:
- Becker (becker.com)
- Roger (rogercpareview.com)
- Wiley CPAexcel (http://www.efficientlearning.com/wileycpaexcel/cpa-products/st-johns/)
- Surgent CPA Review (http://www.cpenow.com/cpareview)
Students must be eligible to sit for the CPA exam when registering for the program, or must become eligible at the end of the semester in which they are registering for the program.
Alumni who graduated prior to the last graduating class are eligible for substantial discounts off the retail price of the Becker, Roger, and WileyCPAexcel review programs.
