Online Accounting Degree | Briar Cliff University

Online Accounting Degree

Get the credentials you need to advance.

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.

How does our program work?

This is an online degree completion program, which means you must have at least an associate's degree to meet the program prerequisites.

Then once you get started, all coursework is offered in a convenient, online format using our cutting-edge online learning platform. You'll advance through the curriculum at your own pace and in the comfort of your own home, and you'll finish every session with practical, real-world knowledge that can be put into practice the very next day!

Be a name, not a number.

Who says an online degree program can't be personal? Our accounting faculty are experienced, well-respected and still practicing in the field. But most importantly, they're passionate about your success. They'll be with you every step of the way, including one-on-one mentorship meetings to keep you on track.
