State Initiative Program
This program was developed by the AUM School of Accountancy and the state government members of its Accounting Advisory Board. The program development was driven by the installation of the State of Alabama’s new accounting systems and the need for state employees to receive formal education to increase their accounting knowledge and skills. This State Initiative Program continues AUM’s commitment to facilitate the educational needs of the State of Alabama’s employees.
In order to be eligible to test for the State of Alabama Personnel Classification of Accounting Technician, one of the requirements is college credit for the successful completion of three accounting courses. The courses below are offered to current state employees, at a discounted tuition rate. ACCT 2010 and ACCT 2020 are requirements of this program. State Initiative students may then choose either ACCT 3110 or ACCT 4510, as their third course. See table for course information and semester offerings.
