The Accounting Department at Casper College takes an active role in the placement activities of its students. As part of our commitment to students and the profession, instructors advise students of career opportunities in the various areas of the accounting profession. The Accounting Department maintains contact with area professionals for the purpose of placing students. Many of these professionals are Casper College graduates and welcome the opportunity to employ additional graduates. Please refer to the Alumni tab to see and read what they say about the Casper College program.
Casper College students graduating with a two-year Associates Degree are qualified to acquire entry-level bookkeeping and tax preparation positions that have beginning salaries of $33,000 to $38,0000 a year. With some experience and proven ability students can then advance to positions earning $55,000 + a year.
After earning an associates degree at Casper College, students may also choose to pursue a four-year Bachelor’s Degree, a Master’s Degree and sit for and pass the CPA exam. The potential to finish your bachelor degree online exists as we have current students and past graduates who are or have attended Franklin University and Chadron State College online while staying in Casper. Visit our University Partnership page at www.caspercollege.edu/university_partnerships/index.html to learn more.
If students pursue these steps of further education and certification, earnings potential and ability to move into management positions will also increase.
There is a steady and growing demand for accounting professionals in Casper and the surrounding area which creates great opportunities for Casper College Accounting Students.
We look forward to seeing you at Casper College soon!
