CPA Exam Success

Focused. Prepared. Ready. Our focus is on your exam success — not just preparation.

A Career Milestone

We know checking the CPA Exam off your to-do list is important to you. Our students are encouraged to study for, sit and pass the exam during their time with us, giving them the opportunity to dive into their career one step ahead. To make that a reality, we have several tools to help aid our students with the daunting task of tackling the CPA Exam.

Tools to Succeed

Aligning with our belief that our students should have access to as many study tools as possible, we provide you with the flexibility to use the resources that best suit your learning style and study habits.

Individual Study Plans

Because students can enroll in three terms throughout the year, and have the flexibility to have vastly different schedules, one study plan for all just won't cut it. To ensure that none of our students fall behind in their goal of completing the exam prior to their job start date, we work closely with you to map out your study schedule within the program. With progression check-in's as you go through the program, we make sure you finish the exam on your timeframe, not ours.

CPA Exam Content Mapping

All of our students receive 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 In-Semester Test Breaks

We provide MACC students dedicated time in the fall and spring semesters to use for target exam scheduling and dedicated study time. These breaks allow you to limit distractions from your coursework to ensure maximum CPA Exam focus. Utilizing these breaks,  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 a more structured environment is needed to ensure your timely progression of passing the CPA Exam, we offer structured Wiley CPAexcel and Becker courses. These courses are scheduled during the academic semesters and timing varies based on year.

Access to Free Review Materials

Most firms hiring our MACC students provide CPA Exam review materials as a part of their employment offer at no cost. If you work for a firm that does not offer this incentive, we provide access to free CPA Exam review materials that can be checked out from the MACC library at your convenience.

Scholarships and Discounts for Review Materials

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