Accounting Program

Mission Statement

The Accounting program seeks to provide students with knowledge of accounting that will allow them to reach their personal and professional goals. For students who plan to complete an associates degree in Business Administration or transfer to a four-year college, the two principle classes provide students with the context to interpret accounting information, including, but not limited to, financial statements. Students who complete the associates degree in Accounting will have the skills to enter the workforce directly as an accounting para-professional or transfer to four-year colleges and continue a major in accounting. Finally, through the CPA Certificate program, the college prepares those who have already attained bachelors degrees for the uniform CPA examination and entrance into the profession of accounting.
