 The Chaffey College accounting program is designed to do three things:

  •  Non-transfer Chaffey College students can prepare for an entry-level position by enrolling in the accounting certificate and/or the two-year accounting degree program.
  • Chaffey College can help if you are interested in upgrading your accounting skills or are preparing to enroll in upper division courses at a four-year college or university.
  • Non-accounting majors can enroll in basic accounting courses that transfer to four-year institutions and provide students with the training to make intelligent use of accounting information.

Chaffey College regularly updates its program in order to provide you with the most current accounting information. Current textbooks are used in all courses and popular commercial accounting software programs are used in accounting software classes.

At Chaffey College, basic accounting courses (Accounting 1A and Accounting 1B) transfer seamlessly to neighboring four-year universities. We monitor universities’ course content to ensure Chaffey College meets the needs of transfer students.

All instructors have completed academic studies in accounting and have accounting experience. At Chaffey College we believe instructors with the combination of academics and practical experience do a better job teaching.

Information on degree and certificate programs is available by emailing the business and applied technology office or the counseling department.
