Accounting Payroll

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by Degree Type

Payroll is a specialized area of accounting that requires in-depth knowledge of federal and state tax rules and regulations, pension plans, benefit plans, garnishments and stock options. The Payroll certificate will provide students with this type of knowledge.

The Accounting Payroll certificate will also prepare students for the Fundamental Payroll Certification exam administered by the American Payroll Association. This certification provides external verification of payroll skills and knowledge.

The Accounting Payroll certificate is designed for the part-time and full-time student. It is expected that many students will have completed ACC 131 - Principles of Accounting I  before they enter the certificate program. Those students will be able to complete the certificate in two semesters. A beginning student will need three or more semesters to complete the certificate because of the sequential nature of accounting courses.
