Welcome to Academic Advising for Undergraduate Accounting Majors. We look forward to serving you this semester and throughout the duration of your Accounting studies at Hunter!

IMPORTANT – As of the fall 2017 semester, all declared accounting majors will be assigned one of the three advisors listed above. You may feel free to see your assigned advisor or you may see any of the three advisors you choose, based on the urgency of your needs and/or your schedules. Since Drs. Cebenoyan and Kozberg are learning the advising duties, for the time being, they may still refer you to Professor Sachs for advising.

SOME IMPORTANT RULES AND GUIDELINES:

  • This service is for undergraduate accounting majors (declared or intended) and those with issues about accounting classes only. NO EXCEPTIONS!
  • Economics majors or students with issues regarding economics classes must consult with the Economics advisors — Professors Matthew Baker, Ingmar Nyman or Purvi Sevak. They may also be reached by email at ecougrad@hunter.cuny.edu.
  • MS Accounting students should consult with Professor Toshi Mitsudome in Room 1520 HW. He can be emailed at accgrad@hunter.cuny.edu.
  • Accounting students interested in internships should see the internship advisor, Professor Vivette Ancona in Room 1539 HW.
  • Advising services for B.S. students in Accounting are offered either by email or IN PERSON, DURING POSTED ADVISING HOURS ONLY. If you email your advising questions or issues, you may still be asked to come in person to see an advisor.
  • THERE IS NO TELEPHONE ADVISING.
  • In-person advising services are offered on a first-come, first-served basis during scheduled advising hours. There are no appointments. That means there can be a long line and a lengthy wait before you are seen. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by these policies.
  • Students coming for academic advising services should have their EMPL ID NUMBERS available when they arrive.
  • To see the official requirements of the B.S. program in Accounting, please see Hunter’s on line catalog at http://catalog.hunter.cuny.edu/preview_program.php?catoid=32&poid=6352&returnto=7960.
  • All Accounting majors are required to take MATH 150 (Calculus and Analytic Geometry). The prerequisites for MATH 150 are MATH 101 (College Algebra) and MATH 125 (Precalculus). Please see an adviser in the Math Department (9th floor HE) to be evaluated with respect to where to begin your Math sequence.
  • To see the Calculus requirement, please visit the online catalog at http://catalog.hunter.cuny.edu/preview_program.php?catoid=32&poid=6352&returnto=7960, and see the section, “Allied Required Course”.
  • As of Fall 2017, the following Accounting courses, which used to have ACC prefixes, will now have ACCP prefixes: ACCP 371, 372, 373, 374, 380, 471, 472, 473, 475, 476, 480, 490. ACC 271, 272, and 280 will still have the ACC prefix, as before.
  • Accounting majors who declared their major prior to fall 2016 are required to maintain a major GPA of at least 2.0 (C). This GPA is for ACC 271, ACC 272, ACCP (or ACC) 371, ACCP (or ACC) 372, ACCP (or ACC) 373, ACCP (or ACC) 374, ACCP (or ACC) 471, ACCP (or ACC) 472, ACCP (or ACC) 473, and ACCP (or ACC) 475. If you repeat courses, all attempted grades (except “F”s) count towards this GPA. F grades count until a course is repeated and passed.
  • Accounting majors who declared their major in fall 2016 or later are required to maintain a major GPA of at least 2.3 (C+). This GPA is for ACC 271, ACC 272, ACCP (or ACC) 371, ACCP (or ACC) 372, ACCP (or ACC) 373, ACCP (or ACC) 374, ACCP (or ACC) 471, ACCP (or ACC) 472, ACCP (or ACC) 473, ACCP (or ACC) 475 and ACCP (or ACC) 490. If you repeat courses, all attempted grades (except “F”s) count towards this GPA. F grades count until a course is repeated and passed.
  • Accounting majors who declared their major in fall 2016 or later are subject to the following new rule: Students who receive a grade of “D” or lower in any of the eleven required Accounting courses in the Professional Studies Requirement will be allowed to repeat the course only once. In total, students may repeat no more than three Accounting courses for which they received a grade of “D” or lower. Students who exceed this allowed number of course repeats will be dismissed from the BS program in Accounting. Students who declared their Accounting major before fall 2016 will not be subject to this new rule. However for these students, we will be less inclined to approve course repeats when these limits have been exceeded.
  • All courses which are prerequisites to required major courses MUST be passed with a grade of C or better before you may progress to the next course in the sequence and in order to graduate. The courses for which you must earn a grade of C or better are ACC 271, ACC 272, ACCP (or ACC) 371, ACCP (or ACC) 372, ACCP (or ACC) 373, ACCP (or ACC) 471 (if taken before ACCP 475), MATH 101, MATH 125, ACC 280, ECO 200, and ECO 221 (or STAT 213).
  • The Accounting course sequence begins with ACC 271, ACC 272, and ACCP 371. These three courses must be taken in sequence, one course at a time. Thus, it will take you three semesters to complete these three courses. No other Accounting courses may be taken until all three of these are completed with a grade of C or better.
  • Once you have passed ACC 271, ACC 272 and ACCP (or ACC) 371 with a grade of C or better, you may then take ACCP (or ACC) 372, ACCP (or ACC) 373 and ACCP (or ACC) 374. Once you have passed ACCP (or ACC) 372 with a grade of C or better, in addition to ACCP (or ACC) 373 and ACCP (or ACC) 374 you may also take ACCP (or ACC) 471, ACCP (or ACC) 472, ACCP (or ACC) 475, (ACCP 471 is a co-requisite to this course) and ACCP (or ACC) 490 (ACCP 471 and ACCP 475 are co-requisites). Once you pass both ACCP (or ACC) 372 and ACCP (or ACC) 373 with a grade of C or better, you may then take ACCP (or ACC) 473.
  • Under certain circumstances, the Department may grant permission to take ACCP 473 with or before you take ACCP 373. The department will decide whether to grant such permission based on your academic performance in Accounting classes previously taken at Hunter. No exceptions will be made to this rule.
  • REGARDING OVER-TALLIES: No permissions will be given to enroll in closed sections. Exceptions: To receive permission to enroll in a closed class section, three conditions must be present. First, you must be a graduating senior, graduating in the CURRENT semester. Second, the course must be a requirement for graduation. Third, there must be no open sections available for the course. ALL THREE CONDITIONS MUST BE PRESENT BEFORE WE WILL GRANT AN OVER-TALLY.
  • Please note: the following courses do NOT count towards the Accounting major: ECO 100, ECO 233, ECO 295XX (including ECO 29560 – Entrepreneurship), ECO 296, ACC 225, and ACC 230.
  • For students needing advisement services regarding the Hunter Core, Hunter’s General Education Requirement (GER), or foreign language requirements, please see Student Services (1119 Hunter East).
  • http://www.hunter.cuny.edu/studentservices/advising
  • Or email them at: AdvisingServices@hunter.cuny.edu
  • Students declaring their Accounting major or minor, or who want to repeat courses should download the forms and, to the best of your ability, complete the form before coming to advising.
  • All degree audit applications are now done on line. There are no more DAAF forms. To learn about the new procedures for applying for graduation, please go to http://www.hunter.cuny.edu/onestop/repository/files/registrar/12_14_website-%20Apply%20for%20Graduation.pdf. Please note, even under the new degree audit application system, all degree applicants will be instructed to see an accounting faculty advisor (for now, Professor Sachs) to go over your major requirements before you will be approved.

Here are some useful URLs for downloading the forms:

NEW: Special instructions to declare your major: To declare your accounting major, please complete the following steps:

1) Go to the Registrar (217 N) and obtain a major declaration form.
2) Fill out the form to the best of your ability. That includes signing and dating the bottom and also the info required along the side of the page.
3) Bring your completed form to the Economics Dept. office (1524 W) and drop it off.
4) Come back a week later to pick up the form which, by then, we will have signed and stamped.
5) Bring the signed and stamped form back to the Registrar.

We look forward to the opportunity to help you navigate your Hunter Accounting Education Experience!
