Female adult students

Foundations of Accounting Certificate

Looking to make a transition to an accounting career? You’re not alone! Because it offers competitive salaries and predictable credentials, accounting is a great field for career changers. Edgewood College helps students from all backgrounds (everything from Political Science to Anthropology) make the transition to a rewarding career in accounting.

Our flexible, once-a-week evening classes are designed for working adults, so you can fit classes in without quitting your job. Thanks to our accelerated 8-week class format, most of our students finish the certificate in one year or less.

Not sure if accounting is right for you? Try one of our 8-week classes to find out! Invest in yourself for one class in the spring, summer, or fall to see if this career path is right for you.


I truly enjoyed each and every professor. I found the faculty to be highly invested, passionate, deeply concerned about their students and, above all, they were born to teach. Each tackled a different subject but still managed to engage students to artfully simplify complex material.
