• Accounting

    Accounting graduates will be prepared to enter a variety of areas in accountancy but may elect to continue their studies to meet the certified public accountant requirements. Many states, including Michigan, now require 150 semester hours of education to become a CPA. The state of Michigan allows a CPA candidate to take the certification exam after completing a bachelor's degree with appropriate courses. This program will meet those requirements within 124 semester hours, but candidates will need to complete the 150 semester hours and experience requirements before being granted the CPA certificate in Michigan.  This program is completed in collaboration with Cornerstone University.

    While some Kuyper College graduates in accounting will pursue a master's degree in a related field to meet the 150-hour requirement, most students couple the accounting program with selected Business Leadership classes to fulfill the requirements for the CPA certification. Some states require that the 150 hours be completed before taking the certification exam.

    Where can Accounting graduates work?

    • Many Finance areas
    • Personal Financial Planning
    • Personal Accountant
    • Production Management

    Comprehensive Curriculum

    The accounting program will educate, equip, and train you for a successful career. Below is just a sample of what some of these courses include:

    • Cost Accounting- Accounting functions in the manufacturing environment. Product costing, overhead cost analysis, standard costs, activity based costing, variance analysis, contribution accounting, flexible budgeting, and responsibility center accounting
    • Taxation- Federal income tax structure as related to individuals, partnerships, and corporations. Problems intended to provide an understanding of the theory, law, and regulations
    Collaborative Program Process: Cornerstone University is a like-minded, accredited, Christian liberal-arts college just two miles south of Kuyper College. Students who intend to enroll in these programs will work closely with Kuyper College's registrar, who is the students’ advisor, to navigate the program requirements.

    Through the collaborative arrangement, students are granted the opportunity to study at Cornerstone as Kuyper students; Kuyper College awards the students’ degrees and (in consultation with the appropriate personnel at Cornerstone) determines the course of study and course equivalencies. Students who elect a major in collaboration with Cornerstone University must complete the admissions requirements as indicated at www.cornerstone.edu. These students are considered non-degree seeking students by Cornerstone University. Upon admission, the students will be registered for their first semester of classes at Cornerstone by the Academic Office at Kuyper College. New collaborative students are also required to complete an orientation at Cornerstone University prior to their first classes. Only students in good standing at Kuyper College will be allowed to begin a collaborative program of study.
