Choice of Programs

Applicants can choose either a one-year or two-year program. Both offer courses in the evening.

This is an nine-month program that offers courses three evenings a week, with a day class, “Special Topics in Accounting, held on selected Fridays. This is a lockstep program that begins in the fall (August) and concludes the following spring (May). The academic year is divided into three 10-week trimesters and includes 10 three-credit-hour courses.

This is a full-time program with a full course load, so students are advised to limit other activities to less than 15 to 20 hours a week."
