Students who hold a J.D. or a master's degree or higher from an appropriately accredited university or have passed the CPA Examination may apply for admission to our tax certificate program.
Study in this program allows students to enhance and expand their expertise in specific areas of taxation. The taxation certificate requires that the student has a basic undergraduate taxation course, or an equivalent graduate level course, as a prerequisite, followed by completion of four graduate tax courses. One of these four courses must be AC 560 Taxation of Business Organization or an equivalent course; the student may choose the remaining three courses according to interest.
Students interested in a certificate in taxation should contact the Department of Accounting and Taxation at 860.768.4343. Students are required to submit an application form, official transcripts, a current resume, and a letter of intent.
