As a CGA student, you only pay for the courses you take. This means that the overall cost depends on how many transfer credits you are awarded. The more extensive your accounting background, the fewer courses you should be required to complete the program.
Keep in mind that the Association recommends students take just one course per term.
In addition, many employers help with CGA academic fees. The majority of CGA students receive some assistance from their employer toward the cost of the program; and many have their course fees paid entirely by their employer.
