Students who are interested in an accounting degree should complete the following courses in order to be prepared to transfer into an accounting program at a senior institution. The suggested courses will help students improve their skills for processing information, analytical thinking, interpersonal relations and communications.

The Associate of Arts and Associate of Science are transfer degrees and are awarded without designation of major, but do follow curriculum transfer plans.  These degrees indicate that a student has completed a course of study that is essentially equivalent to the first two years of a baccalaureate degree.

PLEASE NOTE: When selecting courses, students should consult the catalog of the school to which they intend to transfer.  They should then work with their DCC advisor to assure that the proper classes are being taken at DCC.  Together, the student and the advisor will select courses that will fit into the program at the transfer institution.
