As of April 1, 2024, the North Dakota CPA Board announced a policy change that allows candidates to count unlimited economics courses toward fulfilling the business-related coursework requirement for the CPA examination.

This change reflects a recognition of the interdisciplinary nature of accounting and the value of diverse educational backgrounds in preparing candidates for success in the profession and opens up the CPA Examination to more applicants.  At FACS, a leading international credential evaluation service, and current Charter Member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES), we recognize the positive impact this change will have on CPA candidates, particularly international students and professionals.  We encourage applicants to review all other requirements, as our focus is solely on the education requirements.
