On Course: Classes to Take in Community College

The required and elective courses you should take at community college in order to transfer to a four-year university and become an accounting major may vary. Here are a few suggestions you may want to keep in mind as you make your way:

First things first, check out what general education classes the university you hope to transfer to requires. Typically they’re the same no matter what degree you’re hoping to get, so just make sure you’ve got all your reading, writing and arithmetic classes taken, passed and ready for transfer.

Four-year universities will do a course-by-course evaluation when you are ready to transfer from community college. Be prepared and keep up with the latest transfer requirements for your targeted university so that you’re one step ahead.

Also worthy to note, most community colleges have a guaranteed transfer degree. You should look to see if yours does. This will provide you with a road map on the courses you can take that will definitely transfer.
