PART TIME PROGRAM – The part time program is designed for students who need a flexible schedule, with classes scheduled for evenings and weekends. The part time program takes a bit longer to complete, but it allows students to hold a full time job and study on the side. Students register and pay for each course separately. The first course students should take is ‘Bookkeeping’ because it is required before taking some of the other courses such as Quickbooks and Sage Accounting. Credit may be given for equivalent courses taken at other schools (maximum 3 courses, proof required). The part time program can be completed in 1 to 3 years depending on the course load selected by each student.
