Online Accounting Degree


The University of Wyoming's (UW's) College of Business offers students a Bachelor of Science in Accounting delivered via distance education. The program is accredited by the nation's premier accrediting body, AACSB International, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

This degree completion program will allow qualified students with appropriate prerequisites to complete the accounting program. For students who want to take courses on a part-time basis, the program is entirely self-paced to allow the option of taking a lighter course load.

Once students have successfully completed general education and prerequisite business course work through a community college or other institution, the program allows students with certain prerequisites to complete their degree online at the University of Wyoming (UW). Therefore, the online Accounting degree requires students to have completed Advanced Business Standing (ABS), before completing upper division course work from UW.

The online format and experiential learning environment are ideal for working professionals looking to shape their degrees to meet career aspirations. The new online degree program supports the college’s goal to expand statewide access to its business program offerings.
