Last updated Feb. 10, 2023

Whitworth University's BBA program with a concentration in accounting is designed to prepare interested students to sit for the CPA exam in the state of Washington. To help prospective students determine whether Whitworth's accounting program meets educational requirements in other states, the following information on state requirements is provided for the states of California, Hawaii, Idaho and Oregon. If a state is not listed here, then Whitworth has not made a determination whether our accounting program can meet educational requirements in that state. If you would like more information for a state other than those listed, please contact Tara Lambert ( for assistance in making that determination.
