Accounting Certificate Programs

Accounting certificate programs offer professional development.

Offered through the College of Professional and Continuing Studies, the two certificates in accounting are meant for individuals who want to start a career in accounting or move up in their current career.

Basic Certificate in Accounting

The basic certificate program prepares you for entry-level accounting positions in business and nonprofit entities also prepares you to sit for the Certified Bookkeeper (CB) exam.
