CPA Exam Success

Passing the CPA exam is an important milestone in your career, and our focus is on your exam success — not just preparation.

Focus on the Exam

UofSC MACC student's CPA pass rates far exceed the national average. Our students are able and encouraged to study for, sit and pass the exam during their year with us, giving them the opportunity to dive into their career one step ahead.

Tools to Succeed

We use an integrated approach to the CPA Exam that provides you with the flexibility to use the review materials that best suit your learning style as well as providing you access to several tools to assist you in passing the exam:

CPA Exam Content Mapping to Curriculum

All of our students receive our mapping of MACC prerequisite courses, core courses and electives that correspond to each of the four sections of the CPA exam. This allows you to plan when to take each section of the exam based on your completion of the courses that cover the relevant content.

Integrated CPA Exam Preparation and Test Time

We provide MACC students dedicated time in the fall and spring semester to use for target exam dates and final preparation for the exam. This allows you to limit distractions from your coursework prior to taking the exam to ensure maximum CPA Exam focus. You can easily spread the exam across your MACC experience instead of trying to complete all four sections in the summer before you begin your new job.

Wiley CPAexcel and Becker Review Courses

If you want a more structured environment to ensure your timely progression of passing the CPA exam, we offer structured Wiley CPAexcel and Becker courses.

Access to Free CPA Exam Review Materials

Most firms hiring our MACC students provide CPA exam review materials as a part of their employment offer. If you work for a firm that does not, we provide access to free CPA exam review materials that can be checked out from the MACC library.

Scholarships and Discounts for CPA Exam Review Materials

If you work for a firm that does not provide CPA exam review materials, we provide scholarships that significantly reduce the cost of CPA exam review materials.
