Bookkeeping (BOK)

The objective of the one-year program is to prepare individuals for entry-level jobs as bookkeeping office employees, with opportunities for advancement to more responsible positions. If a student decides to continue toward a two-year degree in accounting or in other Business Department programs, many of the courses already completed may be applied toward that degree.

A Certificate is awarded upon completion of the requirements for this program.

Students who successfully complete the Certificate in Bookkeeping (BOK) will be able to:

  • Use a variety of accounting and business software;

  • Demonstrate knowledge of accounting principles;

  • Demonstrate a real world experience using simulations.

Courses should be selected in consultation with an advisor.
