Accounting connects to virtually every aspect of business operations by providing the key financial information to make informed decisions. As an accounting clerk or bookkeeper you will be responsible for maintaining accounting records of a business, analyze financial records, manage budgets, or may be responsible for specific parts of the records such as accounts payable, accounts receivable or payroll.

PCC’s accounting programs are designed to develop your skills in areas such as: accounting, payroll, computerized accounting application, law, tax, business math, microcomputer applications, financial management, communication, organization, critical thinking and problem-solving.

The Associate of Science Oregon Transfer Degree in Business can be completed almost entirely online. Most, but not all of the courses for the other degrees and certificates can be completed online too.

Post-baccalaureate Certificate

For students with a bachelor degree in other disciplines who are seeking CPA certification, a university post-baccalaureate certificate in accounting is an efficient option. There are two post-baccalaureate programs in the Portland-Metro area and all the prerequisites for these programs can be taken at PCC. Please see one of our business advisors for more information.
