Robin Imgrund, Division Chair
Humanities 17

This transfer pattern is designed for students planning to transfer to a four-year college or university with a major in accounting. The courses included in this program closely parallel the first two years of an accounting major at many four-year institutions. Allegany College of Maryland has formal agreements with select colleges and universities that allow the courses to be easily transferred, but most other colleges and universities readily accept most or all of the courses. Check with your advisor and the Advising Center staff as soon as possible to ensure specific course transferability.

Successful completion of this program qualifies a student to apply for an Associate of Science degree in Arts and Sciences - Area of Concentration in Business Accounting.
