Transition for Undergraduates in Legacy CMA Accredited Programs

These course charts are designed to help you assess if you are eligible for advanced standing in the CPA Professional Education Program (CPA PEP).  Students who will graduate from a CMA Accredited Program prior to and including 2015 will be eligible for advanced standing in the CPA Professional Education Program (CPA PEP) provided the following requirements are met:
  • Overall grade point average of 75% or higher or 3.0 on a 4.0 point scale and
  • All courses must be completed as listed, no alternate courses permitted and
  • Must complete Bridging Module 0 
Eligible students will be permitted to challenge the exams for Core 1 and Core 2 without undertaking the module. Students can challenge exams for Core 1 and Core 2 twice. If a student is unsuccessful after two attempts, then they must complete the relevant module(s).

Upon successful completion of Core 1 and Core 2 exams, students must complete the balance of the CPA PEP (two of the four electives, Capstone 1, Capstone 2 and CFE).

Please note that eligible students must enroll in CPA PEP and challenge a Module examination prior to the end of March 2017 to be eligible for this path.

We encourage you to submit your transcripts for evaluation.   Further details such as enrollment information and dates will be provided to you after your transcript has been evaluated.

If you are planning to use this transitional pathway to pursue eligibility to practise public accounting, please note that it has not been assessed by the Public Accountants Council of Ontario and, therefore, you may be ineligible for  a public accounting licence.
