Accounting and Bookkeeping
“… I am now a certified bookkeeper! It was a lot of work and at times frustration, but this feels good. I think the Bookkeeper program at Casper College is a great opportunity for students and employers.
My passing this test got the attention of a company and I will be … working from home for a software company based in Oregon. … This is an opportunity that wouldn’t have existed for me before taking this program and COVID. I was also asked by a former supervisor to apply at a local accounting firm where she currently works, so the program is a quality education.”
— Terry Seifert, Bookkeeper certificate graduate

Through their committed instructors and alliance programs, I was able to stay in my home town of Casper and still get the education I needed to enter the public accounting field. The opportunities that the accounting department offers can and does open the doors to just about any field you can imagine.
I was able to get my associates at Casper College as well as take the core classes I needed to transfer … to complete the upper level classes I needed … in order to sit for the CPA exam. Had it not been for opportunities that Casper College made available to me, including the experience of online courses, I likely would not be in the position I am in today.”
