The Accounting Department offers introductory courses in Financial Accounting, Managerial Accounting and Microcomputer Accounting. Completion of these three courses can earn the student a certificate of completion in Entry-Level Accounting. Applications for this certificate are in the Business & Computing Division Office.
Advanced courses are also offered in Cost Accounting, Intermediate Accounting, and Federal Income Tax. Completion of these courses plus the Introductory Accounting courses can earn the student our more comprehensive Certificate of Achievement in Accounting.
We have recently added two new courses to our accounting curriculum. Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) is our first service learning course - it involves students in actually preparing Federal and State Income Tax returns for qualifying community residents. Accounting with QuickBooks provides basic instruction in creating and maintaining a computerized accounting system with QuickBooks software.
