Advising Notes

  • ACCT 1110  must be completed with a C- or higher before taking ACCT 1120 . ACCT 1120  must be completed with a C- or higher before taking ACCT 2300 . Completion of ACCT 2010  (instead of ACCT 1110  and ACCT 1120 ) requires instructor approval to register for ACCT 2300 .
  • The MINIMUM number of credits required to earn an AAS degree is 63. ACCT 2010 , ACCT 2020 , and CSIS 2010  satisfy requirements in both the Business Basics Certificate of Proficiency and the Accounting Essentials Certificate of Proficiency. Students completing ACCT 2010  and CSIS 2010  may need to complete additional courses to meet the minimum number of credits required for an AAS degree. In this case, it is recommended that students complete additional ACCT or other School of Business electives.
  • This is a 2-year terminal degree. Some courses are transferable to other institutions. Students should check with the receiving institution to determine credit transferability. The Sample Schedule above is intended to show how this certificate could potentially be completed within two years.
