Required Textbooks and Resources

The last day to use a Financial Aid Advance to purchase textbooks/books is the 3rd Tuesday of the semester. See your financial aid counselor at your academic center if you have any questions.


Methods

This is a FLEX course, which means that you can start and complete the course at any point during the semester. However, it is highly suggested that you start the coursework as soon as you are able, because things always take longer than you think they are going to. And if you need help with the coursework, it is hard to squeeze that all in at the end of the semester. Based on past experience, If you have not started the course by Week 9 of the semester, it is unlikely you will finish successfully.
Assignments include reading the text / assigned materials, reviewing lecture materials, doing practice problems, participating in the discussion board and doing the homework and quizzes.

The days of manual bookkeeping and large ledger books are gone. Bookkeepers and accountants are expected to use computerized accounting software to build and complete a company’s books. In this course, QuickBooks Online will be the software tool. As the course progresses, you will be using the accounting fundamentals learned in Financial Accounting to setup and complete a company’s books.

As part of this course, the textbook will guide the student through setting up a company, recording transactions and creating financial reports in QuickBooks online. There are 2 Case Projects at the end of the textbook that put to use what you learned in the course.

For the semester project, students will design a business of their own, build it with transactions and payroll, along with reports. By the end of the course students will be able to take the NACPB Certification exam for certification in QuickBooks Online.

Attendance Policy

Regular attendance and participation in classes are essential for success in and are completion requirements for courses at CCV. A student's failure to meet attendance requirements as specified in course descriptions will normally result in a non-satisfactory grade.

  • In general, missing more than 20% of a course due to absences, lateness or early departures may jeopardize a student's ability to earn a satisfactory final grade.
  • Attending an on-ground or synchronous course means a student appeared in the live classroom for at least a meaningful portion of a given class meeting. Attending an online course means a student posted a discussion forum response, completed a quiz or attempted some other academically required activity. Simply viewing a course item or module does not count as attendance.
  • Meeting the minimum attendance requirement for a course does not mean a student has satisfied the academic requirements for participation, which require students to go above and beyond simply attending a portion of the class. Faculty members will individually determine what constitutes participation in each course they teach and explain in their course descriptions how participation factors into a student's final grade.

Accessibility Services for Students with Disabilities:


CCV strives to mitigate barriers to course access for students with documented disabilities. To request accommodations, please
  1. Provide disability documentation to the Accessibility Coordinator at your academic center. https://ccv.edu/discover-resources/students-with-disabilities/
  2. Request an appointment to meet with accessibility coordinator to discuss your request and create an accommodation plan.
  3. Once created, students will share the accommodation plan with faculty. Please note, faculty cannot make disability accommodations outside of this process.


Academic Integrity


CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present -as your own work- something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat. Being unaware of what constitutes academic dishonesty (such as knowing what plagiarism is) does not absolve a student of the responsibility to be honest in his/her academic work. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously and may lead to dismissal from the College.
