  • There is no maximum amount of ADMN courses a student can enroll in once a student at Trent University. Therefore, the 5.0 elective credits noted above can be taken within the Business Administration course catalogue if desired. If a student is working towards meeting the CPA-PREP modules, 3.0 of these credits will need to be CPA-PREP approved courses, and not general courses that are selected by students as electives. Students should consult an Academic Advisor to ensure that all requirements are met if they are working towards completing these modules. CPA-PREP required courses are optional and are not required for the Specialization in Accounting within the BBA program at Trent.
