1200 Hours, 90 Quarter Credit Hours | Completion Time – 1.5 year

Quarterly enrollment in January, April, July and September

The Associate of Applied Science in Business Accounting prepares students for entry-level

positions in Accounting. Bookkeeping, accounting and auditing clerks handle a company’s

accounts, complete financial statements and check reports for accuracy, among other

responsibilities. Bookkeepers can only handle financial statements and reports if they have a

QuickBooks certification. Accounting clerks, who typically work for large companies, have a

more narrow focus: accounts payable or accounts receivable. Auditing clerks ensure the use of

proper coding in financial documents and report any errors to accountants.

In this program, students learn a variety of skills including bookkeeping, accounting, generating

financial statements, checking and reporting financial accuracy, dealing with accounts payable,

and accounts receivable. Students can expect to gain employment as a bookkeeper, auditing

clerk, or work in various office and business settings.

Federal Financial Aid is available for this program.
