How the Program Works

All of our ADP programs, including the Bachelor of Accounting, are cohort programs in which a group of students work through each course at the same time. In order to ensure you get the personal attention you need from your instructors, we restrict our cohorts to 14-22 members.

Warner Pacific designs its ADP programs to work with full-time jobs. Cohorts meet once a week in the evening at locations throughout Portland and Vancouver. Dedicated ADP staff offer support with financial aid, admissions, and career services concerns.

Admissions Requirements

To apply for admission to the BAC degree program, you will need:

  • At least two years of full-time work experience
  • At least 48 credits of previous college coursework, with a minimum 2.0 GPA

Your previous college coursework can be in any area, and may have been earned at an accredited college or junior college, as well as through examinations such as CLEP or DANTES tests. An enrollment counselor can help you determine what kind of credit you have that is eligible for transfer evaluation.

Students who do not speak English as a first language may be required to take a TOEFL test or provide official scores from previous tests.

Finally, you need to complete our application form, provide transcripts from previous educational institutions, and pay the $25.00 fee.
