    I need another Upperdivision Business law course to get the CPA License ! I didnt know they required 2 Businesslaw classes in FL ! :@ – i am not yet a resident for tuition purposes …

    Community collages cost as little as 300 bucks !!!!!!!!!!!!!! for the WHOLE COURSE !!!!!! around 1000 for non residents …

    I have seen online schools that cost 2400 !! but its pretty damn flexible and quick.

    Can anyone recommend a cheap school for me ? i dont want to spend half of my cpa bonus on a stupid course !

    I had to take one additional class for my masters in order to make it fit in my schedule. I did an LSU online course. It was super cheap (I am a New York resident) and it counted for CPA credit. I would look there. If I remember correctly I paid around $400 for the class.

    I know other people that have used LSU to “fill the gap” in a relatively inexpensive manner.

    Good Luck!

    That sucks! When do you need the class by? I feel like for the fraud class I took it was a weird rolling window. Maybe call them?

    LSU business law has been on hold for a long time. Univesity of North Alabama has one available on line and is cheap and good. Not sure if it overlaps the one you have taken so proceed with caution.

    I am currently in a similar situation where as I am trying to get an additional business law course so that I can sit for the exam as soon as I graduate with my undergrad in August. I am looking at American Military University or American Public University (virtually same school under APUS) which both have a 4000 level “Law for Accountants.” Both schools are regionally accredited so there is no question as to whether the FL board will except them, but my concern is that they will consider it a “duplicate course.” My first business law course was a 3000 level “Legal and Ethical Environments of Business.” This duplicate course policy is difficult to decipher when it comes to business law because most of the courses are very similar. The best part of AMU is that it is only $250/credit hour and 8 week courses that start every month. Here is the link: http://www.amu.apus.edu/academic/schedule/course/acct415.

    Did you ever find a good university/program?

    I am in the same boat. I just moved to Florida from Utah, and assumed that I would be able to go ahead and sit for the CPA exam right away, BUT I too am deficient in the 3 extra credits of business law.

    If you wouldn’t mind sharing what you did, I would really appreciate it. I am supposed to start up with a firm in 3 months and would really like to find a solution so this doesn’t mess up my offer or cost an exorbitant amount.

    I am in FL too and need Business Law as well.

    My husband is studying at APUS (mentioned above) and as far as I could see the prices are very reasonable and yes, it is a 8 weeks couse. Also they are very organized and everything is well structured from what he was telling me.

    I think I will go for it … after I am done with AUD … this beast!!!!

    I am in the same boat. I’m in FL and need a second business law class which must be upper level. Did the APUS course work for you and your husband as far as getting approved by the state board?

    Thanks for your help!

    I am in the same boat! I am wondering if the 8 week law for accountants course at American Military University is approved by the board? And if anyone here has taken, how was the course?

    I recently applied to sit for the exam in Louisiana and I was informed that I am missing a business law course. I received a letter of my deficiency and all it says is to provide additional documentation in 30 days. What kind of documentation do they want? I tried calling and emailing my assigned coordinator but she is out of the office and isn’t responding.
