Become A Student
This program is designed for students interested in preparing for entry-level positions in accounting. The AAS degree combines general education and business concepts and procedures to fully prepare the graduate for employment. Students can complete the coursework on a full- or part-time basis; however, it is recommended that the degree be completed within four years. Although the program is not intended for transfer to a four-year degree program, most institutions will accept most, if not all of these credits for transfer, though some credits may transfer in as general electives rather than counting towards an accounting or business degree (for example, all of these courses transfer to the First College’s individualized program at Metropolitan State University). A student who completes this degree will have met the educational requirements for licensure as a Registered Accounting Practitioner (RAP) in the state of Minnesota and may sit for the RAP exam. An individual must pass the RAP exam and also satisfy a one-year experience requirement to be awarded the RAP license. See an advisor for further information or assistance in planning.
Some students may need preparatory courses in the areas of English,reading, mathematics, or typing/keyboarding. Courses numbered below 1000 will not apply toward this degree.
