Course Title: Financial Accounting - Waiver Prep Course

Enrollment: 262 / 875 (Enrollment as of 7 AM this morning / Maximum Enrollment)

Description: Those with the equivalent of two courses in financial accounting may have the knowledge to waive the accounting core completely by passing a waiver examination. The waiver-prep course ACCT 608 is offered on campus in the week prior to Pre-Term and reviews the more advanced topics to prepare the student for the waiver exam. This course is fast-paced and is only intended to review these topics, not to teach them. Students with little prior exposure to the more advanced financial accounting topics in ACCT 611, 612, and 613 and little experience interpreting information in real financial statements are better served by taking ACCT 603 or 604. These will provide you a better foundation to do well in ACCT 611, 612, or 613. See the Waiver Information Guide for the official policies governing the waiver and placement process in accounting as well as complete descriptions of ACCT 603, ACCT 604 and ACCT 608.
