The Graduate Diploma in Accounting is a professional program accredited by the Chartered Professional Accountants (CPA) of Ontario. The program emphasizes integration, problem solving, decision making and other CPA-enabling competencies to prepare prospective CPAs for the completion of the Professional Education Program (PEP) and Common Final Examination (CFE), and for their careers. The hybrid learning model provides significant face-to-face time in small classes with highly qualified instructors.
Upon successful completion of the Graduate Diploma in Accounting, students will receive credit for the first four modules of CPA Canada’s PEP, including Core 1, Core 2 and all four elective modules (assurance, finance, performance management and tax) and be eligible to enter the PEP at the Capstone 1 module. Students will be able to write the CFE within 12 months of completing the Graduate Diploma in Accounting, saving time in achieving their CPAs.
The program is delivered in a hybrid format which includes a combination of self-study, online delivery and face-to-face sessions.
Cumulative B+ average (GPA: 3.3 on a 4.3 scale or 77 to 79 per cent) or higher in courses required for admission to the Chartered Professional Accountants (CPA) Professional Education Program (PEP).
Grade of C (60 per cent) or higher in courses required for admission to the CPA PEP.
UOIT students must successfully complete all courses specified for the UOIT Bachelor of Commerce Accounting Major. Graduates of other Canadian universities are encouraged to apply if they have completed a business degree with a concentration in accounting and substantially equivalent coverage as UOIT applicants to the program.
