This semester course first introduces students to accounting careers in the modern business world.  The remainder of the semester will include an  in-depth study of the eight steps of the accounting cycle related to a proprietorship.  Students will learn about the accounting equation, analyzing transactions into debits and credits, journalizing, cash control systems, work sheets, financial statements, and adjusting and closing entries.

The course is offered as ACCT 102: Fundamental of Bookkeeping through Highland Community College.

August and September Highlights:  We began the school year focusing on accounting careers and how accounting is a part of so many career clusters.  We're now well on  our way to working through the accounting cycle and have finished the units focusing on analyzing transactions and journalizing. 

October Highlights:  We have worked through the units focusing on posting, cash control sytems, and the standard accounting worksheet.  In just two short months, we have almost completed the accounting cycle!

November Highlights:  Our class enjoyed a visit from Highland Community College instructor, Carol Wilhelms, who verified our participation in the dual-credit program and gave a short presentation about the accounting program at HCC.  We have finished the complete accounting cycle and will spend the last weeks of the semester working on an accounting simulation project.

December Highlights:  Our class wrapped up for the semester with a brief introduction to corporate accounting and the taking of the semester exam.  For students interested in taking the class during the 2020-2021 school year, please note that we are planning to offer the class for an entire year and focus on corporate accounting during the second semester.

This is a one-semester class.  Please check back in August when the 2020-2021 school year begins!
