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 an associate degree and four certificates. Credit for courses in the certificates also may be applied toward the associate degree.

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.
