A Certificate in Accounting provides students with the opportunity to develop and enrich their accounting skills. This program is ideally suited for working professionals and adult learners who don't have a degree or have little to no college experience.

For those students who already hold a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university, you will have the opportunity to complete the requirements to sit for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam by fulfilling both the 150 semester hour requirement and the 30 semester hours of accounting required.*
