This program is intended for individuals desiring employment in government or not-for-profit organizations. Upon the successful completion of this certificate, candidates will be proficient in fund and not-for-profit accounting and possess the ability to perform basic accounting functions.
The projection of students earning a certificate is 10 students annually. The overall average of awards conferred for the Accounting Certificate for the past six years is 2.2. However, the 2019-20 number of certificates was 6. ACCTG 430 was not taught for several years due to course cancellation. The numbers increased during the year we were able to teach the course. We used the prior-year number to project the number of completers for the future.
The Accounting for Government and Not-For-Profit Organizations certificate will prepare students for entry-level employment in government or not-for-profit organizations. Students gain skills in critical thinking, communication, problem-solving, and ethical decision-making.
There are four core classes required to attain the Accounting for Government and Not-For-Profit Organizations Certificate of Career Preparation. Those four courses are ACCTG-1A, ACCTG-430, ACCTG-435, and ACCTG-460. Two of these classes are four units and the other two are three units. They are designed to be taken concurrently during one semester.
