Completion of a Capella Accounting or Accounting CPA Pathway
degree or certificate alone will not fully meet the educational
requirements to prepare graduates to be eligible to sit for the CPA
exam or to become licensed certified public accountants. Each state
has minimum credit requirements and specific course requirements
that may exceed Capella’s graduation requirements; learners seeking
a CPA license will need to evaluate their prior coursework and their
Capella coursework as a whole to determine how their state’s
educational requirements can be fulfilled. Contact your Enrollment
Counselor or Academic Advisor for more information on course
evaluation. Capella University cannot guarantee eligibility for
licensure, endorsement, other professional credential, or salary
advancement. State licensing regulations and professional standards
vary; learners are responsible for understanding and complying with
the requirements of the state in which they intend to work. For more

If you’re highly motivated, looking to save time and money, and crave the freedom and flexibility of setting your own pace, you may want to consider FlexPath. Rather than face weekly deadlines, you’ll work at your own pace to complete a series of assessments for each course.
There’s no limit to the number of courses you can complete per session — you’ll still pay the same flat tuition rate every 12 weeks.
Each unit consists of readings, discussions, and other activities
you will be expected to complete throughout the week. Assignments are
due on Sundays, though not every course requires an assignment each
In each course, you will receive a detailed scoring guide that describes expectations for every graded assignment.
Grades are based on your participation in weekly reading discussions and completion of assignments. You will also be assessed on your ability to demonstrate an understanding of expected outcomes for your program or specialization. These outcomes are based on the needs and performance standards of your field or discipline.
