Program Overview

McHenry College's Accounting program provides students with a foundation for a future in the field of business as a whole or specifically in the field of accounting. Accountants compile and analyze business reports and prepare financial statements for businesses such as balance sheets, profit and loss statements and tax reports. Accounting is a field that is constantly growing, and as procedures within the industry continue to become more complicated, well-educated accountants are in an increasingly high demand. This program specifically focuses on qualifying students for jobs with accounting and bookkeeping firms, corporations, and government agencies.  One degree option within McHenry's Accounting program is the Tax Practitioner certificate.

Tax practitioners work to provide tax advice, often in matters that require settlement in a court of law.  McHenry's Tax Practitioner Certificate consists of 12 credit hours among four courses.  Students will complete two courses in Income Tax Accounting, one course in IRS Practice and Procedure, and an RTRP Review course to become an Enrolled Agent.  Upon completion of the program, students are required to have a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA at MCC in order to receive the certificate.  Completion of an end-of-program assessment is also a requirement for this certificate.  If students are looking to get started in the field of accounting, McHenry County College's Tax Practitioner Certificate may be a good fit.
