The Accounting program at SLCC provides training in financial and managerial accounting as well as in taxation. Students are taught both manual and basic computerized accounting systems.
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.
General education courses provide training in effective oral and written communication and human relation skills. Students may earn a certificate in accounting (34-35 credit hours required) or may continue on to complete the Associate of Applied Science degree (67-68 credit hours required).
The Accounting program is accredited by the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). This accreditation represents the achievement of meeting the high national standards established for associate degree-granting business programs.
