The results of the 2012 report from NASBA, an organization of the boards of accountancy of the United States, show some exciting statistics!

SF State's Accounting Department contributed a total of 228 first-time candidates (ranked 39th in the nation) taking 424 sections with a 45.1% passing rate.

Our 45.1% passing rate ranked 3rd behind San Luis Obispo (206 candidates, 58.5%), and San Diego State (322 candidates, 57.5%) among the CSU campuses that have more than 200 candidates.

Here's how other Bay Area schools compared:

  • Sonoma State 99, 37.5%
  • San Jose State 307, 43.4%
  • Sacramento 214, 39.6%
  • East Bay 189, 35.6%

This is great news for our accounting programs.

Thanks to everyone for their hard work!
