During the second year, individualized coursework is focused on your chosen area of specialization under the guidance of a faculty adviser.

What will I earn?

The location and size of a company will have a significant impact on wages you can earn. Although entry-level jobs may start out at minimum wage level – add to the mix your education, work experience, on-the-job opportunities and determination – and you can advance further in a short period of time. It's up to you!

Questions?

What do people in accounting do?

Accounting (Photo)

People in accounting are record keepers for businesses and government agencies. Their work may include making bank deposits; recording checks, purchases, and vendor payments; billing customers; bill collection; maintaining inventory records; and sales. They may also prepare financial statements, tax returns, statistical reports, cost analysis, sales projections, and cash requirements for managerial purposes.

If you work in accounting, you are involved in the heart of a business. The accounting staff deals with the organization's finances and provides managers with information they need to make good decisions. Prospective accountants should enjoy working with people as well as with numbers. Since they must communicate information to others, accountants also need good reading and writing skills.

What does SCC offer in accounting?

This is the program certified public account (CPA) candidates would enter.

What if I begin the A.A.S. degree program, then decide to pursue a four-year degree?

If you have been taking classes in the A.A.S. program and then decide to pursue a four-year degree, contact your business counselor or your accounting instructors so they can assist you in tailoring your coursework toward a transfer degree.

Can I complete the A.A.S. accounting program in six quarters?

Full-time students with good reading and math skills have little trouble completing the coursework in six quarters. If you need refresher courses in reading, writing, math, or study skills, they are offered each quarter at SCC. However, plan to complete these courses in time to begin the accounting program fall quarter.

Contact your accounting instructors during your first quarter for help in planning your curriculum.

What classes will I take in the A.A.S. degree program?

Accounting (Photo)

The accounting curriculum changes often in response to changes in the business world, but the types of classes you would take include college accounting, computerized accounting, payroll, MS Word, MS Excel, MS PowerPoint, business communications, speech, economics, business law, and nonprofit accounting.

How much will this program cost?

Is there a demand for accounting graduates?

Why should I consider a legal career?

Like any business, law firms achieve goals and conduct day-to-day operations in an organized, effective and profitable environment. In today's busy legal setting, attorneys are relying more on "trained specialists" to assist in providing outstanding service and cost savings to clients.

As a "trained specialist," while not admitted to the practice of law, you function as a vital part of a legal team. You perform duties requiring knowledge of various legal processes enabling a practicing lawyer to focus on more complex matters.

What does SCC offer?

SCC's Business & Management department offers four areas where you can earn an associate of arts and sciences (A.A.S.) degree or a professional certificate in specific areas of legal studies:

Note: SCC also offers legal office programs through the Business Technology Department.

How do I enroll?

Depending on the degree or certificate you plan to pursue, the prerequisites may differ. Therefore, it's critical to meet with the program coordinator and counseling department early to determine the best program and course schedule for your needs.

For example, acceptance into the paralegal A.A.S. degree program requires that you pass a college assessment test and satisfactorily complete specific general/basic education courses (all with a 2.0 or 'C' grade minimum).

In the other three legal studies areas, the program coordinator and counseling department will consider your previous work experience, other degrees achieved and accredited college course transcripts in determining whether you are accepted into a program.

Note: SCC also offers legal office programs through the Business Technology Systems Department.

When are classes held?

Most classes are designed to accommodate students who work full-time. The majority of specialty courses are taught in the evening and/or early in the morning to complement a typical workday. Most specialty law courses are taught every other year, so it's important to register for those courses as soon as they become available in the quarterly SCC class schedule.

Careful planning is necessary to finish your legal studies coursework in as few quarters as possible. Once again, it's very important to contact the program coordinator to help you plan your course schedule early in your program.

Are intern opportunities a part of the programs?

An important component of obtaining your degree or certificate is working in a law firm (or other legal setting). This opportunity gives you the chance to work with legal professionals--exchanging ideas and comparing analyses--particularly as your legal experience grows. Permission and supervision from the program coordinator is required for an assignment.

Where will I find a job?

Historically, law firms hire the majority of our graduates. However, career choices are constantly expanding and may include:

  • credit unions and banks
  • real estate and title companies
  • insurance firms
  • hospitals and medical clinics
  • government agencies
  • law libraries
  • court systems
  • corporations

These are just a few examples of employers now interested in hiring SCC graduates in legal careers.

In addition, our program coordinator works with an advisory committee to continually evaluate course content, matching employment demands for legal personnel with your skills training at SCC.

How much will I earn?

Locally, legal administration and paralegal wages can range up to $15.00 per hour depending on the scope of responsibilities and firm size combined with your experience and skills. Graduates with a legal nurse certificate can start as high as $20 per hour.


Legal Administration A.A.S.

This six-quarter A.A.S. degree program trains you to run the business portion of a law office (or other legal setting) in a supervisory capacity. The program covers:

  • Office operations and management,
  • Financial spreadsheets and fiscal responsibility,
  • Accounting procedures,
  • Computer information systems,
  • Human resource management, and

  • Assisting in preparing a case for trial,
  • Interviewing clients and witnesses, and
