Associate of Science Degree
Students in the GCC Accounting Program for Academic Year 2016-2017 reviewed 2015 Citizen Centric Reports (CCR) for various Government of Guam Agencies to assist the Association of Government Accountants Guam Chapter in their CCR initiative. This initiative is intended to foster innovative means of communication between governments and their citizenry. The CCR is a four-page report whose purpose is to help citizens gain a better understanding of government operations and finances without having to decode the details of a lengthy and complex report.
The Associate of Science in Accounting blends accounting concepts and skills, financial applications, and business elements with accounting software, and includes instruction in computerized accounting, basic accounting principles and financial accounting applications. The mission of GCC’s Accounting program is to develop a workforce that accurately and professionally addresses the accounting requirements of the dynamic business environment on Guam and in the region. The program trains individuals for employment in private or government accounting fields and provides employees working in accounting-related fields with the knowledge to upgrade their job skills. Students are offered opportunities to experience professional accounting environments through service learning projects that educate, empower, and enable them to be civically engaged.
The Associate of Science in Accounting prepares students for employment in positions such as assistant bookkeeper, accounts receivable bookkeeper, accounts payable bookkeeper, payroll clerk, ledger clerk, and accounting clerk. This degree also allows them to transfer credits to a four-year institution.*
*Credit transfer is contingent upon the requirements of the receiving institution.
