Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

A graduate of WSCC’s Accounting Associate Degree program will have the skills needed in entry‐level accounting positions. Complexity of the work will vary with the size and volume of the employee’s activities and the firm’s procedures. Most starting jobs will involve tasks such as keeping records of day‐to‐day business transactions, making entries in account ledgers, monitoring cash receipts and disbursements, processing appropriate budgetary costing procedures, and preparing balance sheets and materials for financial reports.

Students must earn a minimum of 60 credit hours and have an overall GPA of 2.0 or higher in order to earn a degree. Students must also take any required third‐party exams, especially in the AAAS degrees, such as NOCTI, NCLEX, MTA, and MOS.

This program incorporates a recognized industry certification as part of your degree program. You will study for and complete two separate Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certification exams (included in the cost of tuition).
