Why did you choose to attend Morrisville?
“I chose Morrisville State College because I like the small town atmosphere. I was really nervous to start college by myself. I came from a super small high school, so it was a good transition into a two-year program. It set me up nicely to start here and transfer for my bachelor’s degree.”
In order to prepare students for a career in accounting, Morrisville State College offers two degrees in this field; the Associate of Science (A.S.) degree and the Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree. The Accounting program is accredited by The Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). ACBSP accreditation certifies that the teaching and learning processes within the business, sustainability, and entrepreneurship courses offered in the School of Agriculture, Sustainability, Business and Entrepreneurship at Morrisville State College meet the rigorous educational standards established by ACBSP.
The A.A.S. degree program contains requirements for a minimum of 15 semester hours in accounting and also includes supporting courses in law, statistics, business organization and computer information systems. Students planning to enter accounting or business immediately upon graduation are advised to take as many accounting courses as possible while students who plan to complete a baccalaureate degree program are advised to utilize free course electives in areas other than accounting and related subjects.
Students who wish to diversify their accounting program may use free electives to build a supplemental knowledge base in computer information systems or management. Accounting is the language of business and is a key ingredient to solid career preparation.
Morrisville State College students access state–of–the–art software through a campus–wide computer network and laptop computers. They use interactive computerized programs designed as part of the Accounting Education Change Commission initiative. The networked programs allow the student to “experience” accounting with immediate, consistent feedback.
