What will I learn?

At JCCC, you’ll gain on-the-job experience working in an internship for an approved business or nonprofit organization. Our two-year curriculum will give you a strong base in accounting principles and all the practical skills you need for accounting positions. You’ll also have a solid foundation to transfer to a four-year school of business.

Our top-notch professors will teach you about:

  • Accounting software
  • Federal income taxes
  • Accounting principles
  • Business ethics and fraud


The courses you take at JCCC cover the same material at the same level of rigor as four-year business schools. Meet your general education requirements—even earn an Associate of Applied Science degree—and build a strong foundation in accounting principles before moving on to a four-year school and specialized field of study.

Just because you like crunching numbers doesn’t mean you won’t get stuck every now and then. An accounting tutor or instructor is available in the Accounting Resource Center during set hours, free of charge. JCCC also offers free science, math, writing and language tutoring on campus. These resource centers are available to students seven days a week.

Make an appointment with an Academic Counselor to explore all your transfer options.

Angela King, CPA, Accounting Professor
"Accounting goes beyond memorizing accounting terms and facts to understanding the 'big picture' of business. Accounting is not just one job. It is a career that leads to many job opportunities within the accounting field and business as a whole."
