Advance your career

Accounting - the measurement, processing, and communication of financial information - is a growing field. Curry College's degree program is designed to provide a strong foundation for an accounting career, including preparation for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam.

In classes with busy, working adults just like yourself, you'll acquire the knowledge to pursue financial, government, corporate and forensic accounting as well as auditing and taxation careers.

Courses begin every eight weeks

The time required to complete your degree depends on the number of courses you take each term, which you can determine according to your personal and professional responsibilities. With new courses beginning at Curry every eight weeks, your progress can be as fast or as flexible as you choose.

Make the most of your transfer credits and work experience

Curry helps you fast-track your degree completion by offering:

  • Transfer credits for courses completed at other colleges - with no time limit on transfer credits, including science courses. At least 30 credits must be completed at Curry College to earn a degree.
  • College credit for equivalent education and relevant work experience.
  • College credit for a passing score on CLEP, DANTES or Regents examinations.

No Application fee required

Curry has no application fee, and you can enroll in most continuing education courses while you're compiling the application materials. Once complete, we promptly review your materials and mail an acceptance letter to you. If you apply for financial aid, Curry's Student Financial Services Office will notify you after you are accepted about eligibility for a financial aid award.
