Curriculum for students entering program in 2014-15.

The degree of Associate in Science with a major in Accounting is awarded upon successful completion of the program.

Excellent is the best word to describe the career potential for today’s accounting students.  The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics states that jobs for bookkeeping, accounting, and auditing clerks are projected to grow 11 percent through 2022.  As the number of organizations increases and financial regulations become stricter, there will be greater demand for these workers to maintain books and provide accounting services.  Accounting is a critical component of every type and size of business and industry including government, health care, education, not-for-profit, and military organizations. Entry-level accounting employees provide much of the information used by these organizations to help them make financial decisions.

The NHTI Accounting program offers an Associate's Degree, Basic Certificate or Advanced Certificate to prepare students for entry-level positions in accounting, business or finance, and those who seek transfer opportunities to four-year colleges and universities.

Courses are offered day and evening.  This program is now also available 100% online.  FInd out if online learning is right for you.

The A.S. in Accounting degree program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). The most recent report to ACBSP on student learning and academic achievement in NHTI business programs is available here.
