ABO offers clarification on pass/fail courses

Written on Mar 31, 2020

The Accountancy Board of Ohio reports it has received several emails from students and educators with questions about pass/fail courses and credits.

The Board said passed courses must receive earned credits to count toward the academic requirements to sit for the CPA exam. These credits must appear on an accredited school’s transcript and must be calculated in the total credits earned. The Board said there are no specific requirements regarding what courses will be accepted, as schools differ slightly on course names details.
