CPA exam ranking
Thursday, December 19, 2019

The latest National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) report shows that 80.2 percent of Tippie accounting graduates passed the CPA exam on their first try in 2018. The results place the accounting program CPA first-time pass rates at #1 in Iowa, #2 in the Big Ten, and #11 nationally.

NASBA ranks 249 schools with large programs nationally (those with at least 60 candidates). This latest ranking isn’t a blip. Over the aggregate 2015-2018 period the college’s graduates passed at a rate of 75.1 percent, which drops the college slightly to the #3 spot in the Big Ten, but keeps us solidly at #1 in Iowa and significantly above the performance of all CPA exam candidates nation-wide.
