University of Lethbridge CPA Bridging Program Funding

Thanks to the generosity of two distinguished CPA Education Foundation donors, financial assistance is available to eligible Bridging Program students. Financial assistance for students and for program implementation was also provided through a generous grant from the Government of Alberta Community Spirit Program.

Available at University of Lethbridge campuses in Lethbridge and Calgary, CPA Bridging enables you to complete the business and accounting courses needed for entrance into the CPA Professional Education Program (PEP), while you continue to work full-time. PEP is the certification program for the CPA designation.

Designed with the needs of career changers and adult learners in mind, courses are offered evenings and weekends in Calgary and Edmonton, and during the day in Lethbridge. They are taught by PhD-qualified academic staff and experienced accounting professionals in a classroom environment.
