According to AffordableColleges.com:

“Morehead State University's online bachelor's in accounting program is an extension of the school's bachelor's in business administration. Based in Morehead, Kentucky, MSU's program is a degree-completion offering, meaning that applicants will already have typically completed most of the lower-level coursework needed for graduation. Some learners enter the program with an associate degree, whereas others have completed an equivalent sum of college courses.

The school's bachelor of business administration: accounting curriculum consists of 27 credits, generally taken over the course of two years along with the upper division business core curriculum. Most classes are asynchronous, though some professors will require occasional real-time meetings. Some exams may require proctoring. Admission requires students to meet general MSU standards for admission -- a high school diploma or GED, SAT, or ACT scores.--. Some students may be admitted on a conditional basis. Online learners pay the Kentucky resident rate for tuition.”
