Oregon State Board requires a standard 150 credit hour requirement, but the accounting and business courses are relatively flexible without the restrictions to upper-division level.
Note that there are two levels of qualifications for accountants in Oregon: the CPA and the PA (Public Accountant). Please make sure you click on the correct information on the State Board website.
Note: Courses from community colleges are acceptable if they are transferable to an accredited four-year college or university. Generally 100 and 200 level community college courses are considered transferable. You are not required to actually transfer the courses to a 4-year college or university.
CPE is needed for license holders. Click here for Oregon CPA CPE requirements.

I am the author of How to Pass The CPA Exam (published by Wiley), and I also passed all 4 sections of the CPA Exam on my first try. Additionally, I have led webinars, such as for the Institute of Management Accountants, authored featured articles on websites like Going Concern and AccountingWeb, and I'm also the CFO for the charity New Sight. Finally, I have created other accounting certification websites to help mentor non-CPA candidates. I have already mentored thousands of CPA, CMA, CIA, EA, and CFA candidates, and I can help you too!
