Master of Accountancy CPA Pass Rates at Auburn Far Exceed National Averages

The Master of Accountancy (MAcc) Class of 2019 produced one of the highest pass rates of any MAcc class at Auburn University since 2005. The overall pass rate for each exam section was 94 percent compared to a national average of 54 percent.

The Auburn MAcc curriculum is designed to enable students to sit for all four parts of the CPA Exam before graduation. The 2019 results on the CPA Exam were exceptional with 95 percent on Financial (FAR), 94 percent on Audit (AUD), 92 percent on Regulation (REG), and 93 percent on Business Environment & Concepts (BEC), compared to the national percent passing rates of 44 percent, 55 percent, 59 percent, and 58 percent, respectively.

Since 2005, the Auburn MAcc program has included a reduced course load in the spring semester while completing the Becker CPA Review and sitting for all four parts of the exam prior to graduation. Auburn MAcc students have had tremendous results, with an average of 85 percent pass rates on all four parts over the past 15 years.

“The MAcc Class of 2019 has shown what can be achieved with hard work and dedication,” said Andee Hodo, director of Accounting Graduate and Online Programs. “In addition, the proven success of our MAcc students on the CPA Exam is due to both our outstanding faculty who provide our students with an excellent educational background and our exceptionally supportive employers, who hire our students and provide the Becker CPA Review course as an employee benefit.”

“We know that the MAcc Class of 2019 will be very successful as they begin their careers and will represent Auburn University and the Harbert College of Business well.”
