Accounting Certificate

This program is offered at Clark State's Beavercreek, Online and Springfield locations.

Accounting, long referred to as the "language of business," is an excellent foundation for any type of office position. Most managerial positions require an understanding of accounting. This program provides the basic courses that teach fundamentals of recording business transactions, the balance sheet, the income statement, and basic cost accounting concepts/entries. Courses are applicable to the associate degree program.

Students with little or no computer background should enroll in ITS 0800 Computer Fundamentals, as a preparatory course before taking other computer courses. Students without adequate keyboarding skills should enroll in ITS 1210 Keyboarding/Word Processing.

The program schedule that follows is designed for full-time students who have completed all prerequisites and who have no college preparatory recommendations. Many individuals, especially part-time students and those taking college preparatory courses, will require additional semesters of study. Students should consult their academic advisors for help in planning their schedules.
