Spring 2021 Trine Course Catalog

Associate in Accounting (60 hrs.)

The associate in accounting program is designed to prepare students for immediate entry into the accounting field. It combines a concentration in accounting and computer science with business, economics and general education subjects. This program is especially appropriate for positions in businesses that require a small but knowledgeable accounting staff. As all of the credits are fully transferable to the four-year accounting major at Trine University, it serves as an excellent program for students who subsequently plan to seek a Bachelor of Science degree with an accounting major. A specified number of credit hours must be taken in each section described below. Prerequisites as shown in the Course Descriptions section of this catalog must be carefully observed. Excess credit hours in a section may not ordinarily be counted toward requirements in another section.
