Get Started in Accounting

The Accounting program provides you with entry-level skills in the field of accounting. Graduates will be prepared for employment as bookkeepers, accounting paraprofessionals, accounting assistants, and computer accounting assistants in public accounting, industry and government. If you are currently employed, the degree offers the opportunity for job upgrading. If you wish to transfer, consider the Associate of Arts program.

You must demonstrate basic reading, writing, and mathematics skills before entering this program. Your skills in these areas may affect the sequence of courses in which you can enroll and may also extend the time required to complete this accounting program.

This program has certain Physical and Academic Standards (pdf) which you will be required to meet before you are admitted to the program. Students accepted into the college’s vocational programs must be physically, mentally, and emotionally self-supportive with reasonable accommodations. If there is a concern about meeting the physical and academic standard, students need to contact the Disability Services Coordinator who will determine the student’s ability to participate in this program.
