Intermediate Accounting

This accounting certificate prepares a student to move beyond an Associate of Applied Science degree by offering an intermediary option of core accounting and relevant business classes before entering the workforce or transferring to a four year college. For students who have earned a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration this certificate will provide a focus on accounting. The certificate will qualify students for job opportunities and advancements in paraprofessional positions within the accounting industry. Depending on current regulations, this certificate may also serve as a starting point for the CPA exam.

In consultation with an Accounting Faculty Advisor, the certificate can be tailored to meet the needs of students who have already achieved significant skills and knowledge in accounting.

The program assumes that students have previous knowledge and skill in basic computer applications in a Microsoft Windows operating environment. Students without prior computer experience should remedy any computer deficiencies before beginning the certificate course of study.

Consulting with an Accounting Faculty Advisor is strongly recommended before beginning the intermediate accounting certificate program.
