The Accounting Department provides non-accounting, undergraduate students with the opportunity to acquire accounting knowledge and skills by completing the requirements for the minor in accounting as outlined below. The purpose of the minor is (1) to develop marketable skills for persons with majors/subplans other than accounting, (2) for those students majoring in technical fields that involve the direct or indirect use of the knowledge and skills of accounting, and (3) for those students who wish to gain a better understanding of accounting for personal use.

It is possible for students in most non-accounting fields to complete the minor within the normal requirements of their degrees through careful planning and scheduling of their required and elective courses.

No courses in the minor program may be waived or substituted. The student is responsible for meeting the requirements of the minor program that are in effect at the date of signing the formal contract for the minor in accounting. It is recommended that the contract be signed by the student before beginning the minor program.

For more information or to enroll in the minor, contact the Accounting Department at (909) 869-2365.
