Online Accounting Degree


The University of Wyoming's (UW's) College of Business offers students a Bachelor of Science in Business with a major 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. These online delivery programs are designed to help students maximize their flexibility in the business world.

The online accounting degree is offered almost in its entirety through the University of Wyoming, with the exception that students must have taken MATH 2350/2200 and MATH 2355/2205 through another institution as they are not offered online consistently through UW.  The University of Wyoming College of Business works closely with our Wyoming community college partners to assist students in taking and transferring these math courses and other courses that align with our curriculum. Students are able to take a variety of transferable 1000 and 2000 level courses from Wyoming Community Colleges, in consultation with the College of Business, and then complete their upper division coursework from the University of Wyoming.

 Students will be required to apply to UW and meet UW admissions criteria prior to enrolling in any College of Business program. Students must also attain a 2.500 GPA for graduation for both College of Business and UW courses, complete and submit an anticipated graduation date form, and must pass the Senior Exit Exam (BUSN 4990) to graduate.

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.
