Bachelor in accounting not required for CPA?

Are there any states where the education requirement for CPA is less than specifically a Bachelor's degree IN ACCOUNTING???
Is there any experiential substitution for the degree anywhere?
TIA

I think all states require the equivalent of a college degree and none would allow an "experiential" CPA to practice

The bachelor's doesn't have to be in accounting, but there do have to be a certain number of approved-content accounting hours in the degree obtained, and it must be from an accredited program.

Some might. Go to http://www.nasba.org , click on exams, then CPA Exam, then browse the states, which will have links to the state boards of accountancy, who have eligibility requirements details. I seem to recall once finding a PDF that had all the states laid out in one place, but I am not sure where I found that. Google would probably turn something like that up :)
