This work-for-credit program is designed to immerse participants in the dynamic world of accounting, preparing them for the challenges they will face as future Certified Public Accountants (CPAs). Through this program, students earn a full-time professional salary while:

  • Studying to pass the CPA exam
  • Completing the 150-credit educational requirement for CPA certification, and
  • Meeting the one-year experience requirement.

Through Seton Hall's partnership with Withum, participants have access to a vast network of industry professionals. Networking events, mentorship programs, and collaborative projects provide invaluable opportunities for participants to build relationships with seasoned professionals, enhancing their prospects for future career success. Seton Hall Accounting faculty provide meaningful mentorship and guidance through the year long program, which culminates in a Certificate.
