Online MS in Accounting


The Accounting area offers several courses online. These online courses are available to all students whether they are doing most of their coursework online or on campus.

Students who are preparing to take the CPA exam should be aware that the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy requires that 15 of the 30 hours of accounting required to sit for the CPA exam must be completed on campus. Students residing outside Texas should check with their respective State Boards of Public Accountancy to learn the requirements for sitting for the CPA exam.

The titles of the ACCT courses that are taught online are provided in the table below. The table also indicates when the courses are expected to be offered as well as if the courses qualify for credit toward the 30 hours of accounting or 3 hours of ethics required by the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy.
