Statistics published annually by the NASBA reveal that Gonzaga Master in Accountancy (MAcc) students consistently perform significantly above the national average on all sections of the Uniform CPA exam.

  • 72.3% first-time CPA pass rate (national average under 50%)

  • Ranked 21st in the country for our first-time CPA pass rate (large programs)

  • Highest first-time CPA pass rate in the Northwest

Gonzaga takes a personalized approach to help students succeed on the CPA exam. We recognize that each student has a unique situation in life, which is why we don’t believe in a “one model fits all” approach. Through an integrated curriculum and support from faculty and advisors, we help students develop a customized CPA study plan to fit their unique needs, guiding students to succeed on all sections of the CPA exam. Our students typically pass 2-3 sections while they're in our graduate program, so they can finish the CPA over the summer and start their career with the CPA complete. Not only does this make life easier, it usually comes with a CPA bonus from the employer!

To sit for the CPA examination, Washington State requires candidates to obtain 150 semester credit hours of acceptable educational preparation. Gonzaga offers an MAcc degree tailored for students who desire to fulfill the 150-hour requirement and earn a graduate degree at the same time. The MAcc curriculum integrates material covered on the CPA examination, preparing students for success on the CPA and in their careers.
