Accountants are important members of the management team. They provide accurate, up-to-date financial information required for making major business decisions. Accounting students acquire a thorough understanding of accounting principles and their application to practical business situations. Graduates are well prepared for employment at the junior accountancy level in business, public, or nonprofit accounting.
The Accounting program offers two associate degrees and one certificate. Credit for courses in the certificate may also be applied toward the associate degree.
Scheduling and Entry Options
Day and evening classes are available. Although major courses start in the Fall Semester, students may enter any term. Full-time day students should allow at least four terms to complete degree requirements. Part-time students, day or evening, should allow at least eight consecutive terms to earn the degree. General Education course requirements can be completed at any time during the program. Courses can be completed in any order subject to the completion of course prerequisites.
