Academic and Career Advising
Accounting is the process that summarizes economic information about a business entity for use by decision makers. Users of this information include investors, creditors, management and government agencies. Often this information is prepared using computer applications. The Accounting program at SLCC provides training in many types of accounting; such as financial, managerial, individual taxation, and governmental. Students are taught both manual and basic computerized accounting systems. This Certificate of Proficiency interfaces with continued study toward an SLCC AAS degree in Accounting or General Business.
Students who are interested in pursuing courses leading to a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting should follow the courses listed in the Business Associate of Science or the Business Associate of Arts Degree listed elsewhere in this catalog.
This program provides excellent entry to mid-level skills for various positions in the field of accounting, depending on the individual person.
