Did you know... Business Management AAS may now elect to take ACNT 1303 or ACNT 1304 as alternatives to ACCT 2301 & 2302?

What's the difference?

The ACCT courses are foundation courses for students wanting to continue on to a four year college and major in the Business disciplines. The emphasis is more on accounting theory and the coursework is geared to testing proficiency.

The ACNT courses are foundations for the Accounting Technician Certificate and are geared to hands on learning for students who want real world jobs in accounting and entrepreneurial small businesses.
