2014 - 2015 Student Handbook
Dear CGA Students:
Welcome to the 2014–2015 academic year!
As you know, this is an exciting time for our profession as the three professional accounting bodies in B.C. have agreed to merge under the Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designation. We recognize that this will be a period of change for many of our students, but it also represents a great opportunity. You can keep track of developments and updates by visiting the Merger Update section found under the Students tab of our website.
Whether you are a new or returning student, we support you in your decision to continue your CGA studies as we enter the final year of the CGA Program of Professional Studies. Completing the CGA Program requires hard work and discipline, but as every graduate can attest, the rewards are many. For those of you who will transition to the CPA programs in the future, we are confident your academic studies under CGA will assist in easing that transition.
Your success is important to us and so it is essential for you to read this Handbook carefully since it contains important information about policies and procedures relating to the program.
On behalf of CGA-BC’s Student Services Team, we wish you a successful and satisfying academic year.
