NYU Continuing Education Classes.

Does anybody know if the accounting courses offered by New York University (NYU) division of continuing education are acceptable for sitting for the CPA exam?
Thank you
(Please, "contact, the school" or some other lame response is not the answer I'm looking for. If you don't know the answer please move on to the next topic. Thank you!)

Continuing education clasesses are generally not classes that will lead to a degree. Generally credit hours are what count. http://www.nasba.org/nasbaweb/NASBAWeb.nsf/wpecer?openform&stateabbrev=NY
The specific educational requirements are listed on the above website, or, contact the testing agency

Please contact the State Board that administers the exam.

Thanks,
Is it really necessary to post an answer if you don't know the answer?
Does anybody.... actually FRICKING KNOW if NYU accounting classes in the school of continuing education are acceptable to the New York board?
I am looking for a YES or a NO response from somebody who actually FRICKING KNOWS!
For example, The answer to "Does UCLA continuing education ("Extension") classes meet the education requirements?"
THE ANSWER IS "YES"!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I knew Deja News was a waste of time.

If you called the NYS licensing board, they will tell you.

If you already know, why are you asking.

The best place to get that would be from - the horses mouth.

Oh, Now I get it. You're a troll.
Okay, that's cool.

You're the one displaying trollish (or at least childish) behavior. Until someone with first-hand knowledge pipes up in this thread, here's what I have found out:
http://www.op.nysed.gov/cpalic.htm#educ
"[A]n accounting program registered by the Department as licensure-qualifying"
It doesn't say just courses from an accredited university (as the California qualifications do), but rather be enrolled/participating in an accounting program. To me, CA would allow the UCLA continuing ed courses because they are being offered by an accredited university, whereis NY would not allow them, unless they were taken as part of an accredited program.
The list of accredited schools in NY schools can be followed from that same page, and this is what turns up for NYU:
http://www.nysed.gov/COMS/RP090/IRPS2A
Their BS, MS, MBA and MPA programs qualify for the CPA exam. The "Accounting and Federal Taxation" "advanced certificate" program, for instance, though, does not. (Neither do any of the other accounting-related "adv crt"s). I do not KNOW (so feel free to call me a troll) whether advanced certificates are the same as continuing education classes, in NYU parlance. My assumption would be that no, they are not.
In general, continuing ed classes are not for-credit, and are not part of degree-awarding programs. Given that, it's unlikely that in New York State, the continuing ed classes would qualify for you to sit for the exam in New York State. They might, though, qualify for you to sit in California.
As Paul originally said, you should probably just call the licensing board of the state you want to be licensed in. They can give you a definitive answer.
