Accounting students do well on CPA exams
Dordt students historically have done well on the Certified Public Accounting (CPA) exam. Last year both students who took the exam passed on the first attempt. This year six out of eight passed all sections on the first attempt. These numbers compare to a national average of ten to fifteen percent who pass all sections the first time.
Although the college doesn't keep official records of these results, Dr. Bob Hilbelink is pleased with the work of his former students. Based on informal reporting, he estimates that over the years an average of thirty to thirty-five percent of Dordt graduates pass all sections on their first attempt.
