Accounting Degree and Certificate

The associate of applied science (AAS) in accounting (301) is being deleted. New majors will not be accepted. Students who wish to earn a four-year bachelor's degree in Accounting are advised to follow the Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree in Business, and work with an advisor to plan a program with appropriate accounting and business courses.

Transfer Opportunities

MC has a long history of successfully preparing students for transfer to four-year institutions.  Students who previously completed this degree can discuss how it will transfer to UMGC (the University of Maryland Global Campus). See Business Transfer Agreements.  

Most four-year institutions prefer that students take only ACCT 221 & 222 at MC, then complete upper-level accounting courses after transfer. Most four-year accounting degrees require that students specialize in accounting courses in the junior and senior year (in 300- and 400-level courses), taking only ACCT 221 & 222 Principles of Accounting I and II at MC prior to transfer.
