Curricular programs should be responsive to industry demands not only locally but globally in this day and age. The study was conducted to assess the existing admission and retention requirements of the Bachelor of Science in Accountancy (BSA) Program at Camarines Norte State College. The study used a descriptive research design. The study revealed that the majority of respondents chose BSA as their first choice during the testing and admission stages, had 91-95 grades in high school, have English, Mathematics, and CNSC entrance examination grades within 86 to 90. Findings also show that compliance with the requirements prescribed by the institution and the program is the most effective admission requirement while taking a qualifying examination and obtaining at least 75 percent in all accounting subjects taken is the most effective retention requirement. The major challenge encountered is heavy academic pressure. It is suggested that the administration conduct special qualifying examinations and provide other accounting-related courses.
