Registration

To register for the classes, you may go to our registration system by following the links through wilkes.augusoft.net. There is now an “Accounting CPE Home Study” category where the classes are located. Once you register, you will receive a confirmation email with login instructions.

To receive full credit for the class, you must view each video segment and answer the polling questions. You do not have to answer the polling questions correctly. However, you must receive a 70% or better on the final exam to receive credit. If you score below a 70%, you may take the exam again after an hour. You can take the exam as often as you need to until you pass, waiting an hour in-between each attempt. Once you pass the final, you may complete the course evaluation and print your certificate.

If you have any questions about the programs, please email margaret.petty@wilkes.edu.
