The applied accounting program prepares students for entry-level accounting positions in payables and/or receivables, bookkeeping and payroll accounting. This program covers financial decision-making tools for the small business operator as well.

Courses in the applied accounting program address the concerns of modern business people and provide the training necessary to enhance business success. The applied accounting program prepares a student to enter the UAF School of Management's B.B.A. program in accounting in order to earn the 150 credits required to take the CPA exam in Alaska.

Students entering the A.A.S. program are expected to have basic computer skills equivalent to CIOS F150. Classes are scheduled in the evening to accommodate working students. Microcomputer and office technology labs are available for "hands on" training.
