Program Description: 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 financial and managerial accounting. Students are taught both manual and basic computerized accounting systems. General Education courses provide training in effective oral and written communication and human relations skills. Students may earn a Certificate in Accounting (30 credit hours required) or may continue on to complete the Associate of Applied Science degree (69 credit hours required), leading to employment in areas such as accounts receivable, accounts payable, general ledger, and payroll.

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.
