Certificate in Accounting
Rasmussen College

Program Details

At Rasmussen College, the Accounting Certificate is for those looking to get started in accounting as well as those already in the field who want to add advanced knowledge to their skill set. You’ll learn how to prepare tax returns and financial statements, as well as how to use accounting computer applications. This Certificate features flexible, competitively priced courses and can be completed in as few as 9 months—and ladders into Rasmussen's Accounting Associate’s or Bachelor’s degrees.* Because the program is available with Flex Choice®, you can combine traditional online coursework and self-directed assessments—a more affordable way to receive credit for what you already know.

*Completion time is dependent on transfer credits accepted and courses completed each term. See rasmussen.edu/SID for information about educational debt, earnings and completion rates.
