Accounting Programs

The certificate and the AAS degree in accounting are both designed to help students enter the workforce in an entry-level or a bookkeeping position.  Students planning to complete a professional accounting certification, such as the CPA, must continue their education at a university after graduating from CAC. Students desiring to earn their bachelor's degree in accounting should follow the Associate of Business (ABUS) degree track.

See Accounting Certificate or AAS Degree Program Sequencing Guide attached under Resources.
