Graduate Tax Program

Advanced Professional Certificate in Taxation

Candidates for the Advanced Professional Certificate (APC) must hold a J.D. or an LL.B. degree from a law school that is approved by the Section on Legal Education of the American Bar Association or its foreign equivalent. Please note that admissions deadlines differ for candidates with foreign credentials. The APC consists of a combination of related courses totaling at least 12 credits and not exceeding 14 credits. The APC in Taxation may be completed by students who wish to pursue only the Certificate, as well as students who have been admitted to the Part-time LL.M. in Taxation program.

Students may complete the program in one calendar year of part-time work. All APC requirements must be completed within four years. Since the APC consists of advanced courses, students must satisfy prerequisites.  Many of the courses in the certificate programs may be available online. However, most states now regulate distance learning, and some states effectively restrict schools from offering small programs online.  While the certificate programs are available to be completed online by New York residents, residents or domiciliaries of other states may not be able to complete these certificate programs online.  Please contact the graduate tax program with any questions about this if you are a resident or domiciliary outside of New York state, and we can assess whether you can attend the program.  The Advanced Professional Certificate programs are:
