Online Accounting Degree

Bachelor of Arts — Program Overview

Most people think an “accountant” and a “CPA” are the same thing. Not in the business world!

Majoring in accounting without becoming a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) is like going to law school and skipping the bar exam. That’s why our online accounting degree program is designed to prepare you for the most important test you will ever take — the Uniform Certified Public Accountant examination.

Becoming a CPA will open just about every door in the business world: the chance to work for accounting firms, the government, corporate management — or even the know-how to start your own company.


Explore our convenient and flexible online curriculum, at your own pace and in the comfort of your own home, and you'll experience compelling courses, innovative faculty and thought-provoking forums for discussion. Most importantly, you'll finish every session with practical, real-world knowledge that can be put into practice the very next day!


You may transfer up to 90 credit hours from other institutions to go toward the 124 credit hours needed for your online accounting degree. Contact an advisor for more information.
