Associate of Applied Science in Accounting
Accounting is a 63-credit hour program offering specialized knowledge and working applications of accounting principles, federal income taxation, and payroll regulations and procedures in both manual and computerized accounting systems. Graduates are trained for positions such as junior accountants, payroll clerks, accounts receivable/payable clerks, and budget or credit analysts.
Technical Certificate in Accounting
Accounting is a 30‐credit hour certificate program. All credit is applicable to the AAS Accounting Degree. Graduates are trained for entry‐level accounting positions.
The Associate of Applied Science degree, Technical Certificates, and Certificates of Proficiency are designed for employment purposes, and it should not be assumed that the degree or the courses in these programs can be transferred to all four-year institutions. While some institutions do accept some (or in some cases all) courses in A.A.S. programs, the general rule is that courses in A.A.S. degrees are not accepted in transfer toward bachelor's degrees unless that degree has been articulated with that specific institution. Students to whom transfer is important should get assurances in writing in advance from the institution to which they wish to transfer.
