On successful completion of the program, the degree Bachelor of Accounting (BAcc) is awarded. Bachelor of Accounting Co-operative (Co-op) The Co-op program is fully accredited by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario. Students work in a wide variety of locations throughout Ontario. The program scheduling combines academic and work terms over a four and one-half year period. Students must register with the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario on a conditional basis at the beginning of the first work period. Chartered Accountant students must accumulate a minimum of 30 months work experience, six months of which must follow the completion of the Bachelor of Accounting degree. In addition to the current fees for courses in academic study terms, Co-op Accounting students are assessed an annual administrative fee (see the Schedule of Fees).
