*Before students take courses needed to meet requirements, it is strongly recommended that they send a list of courses in these areas that they already have, in addition to those they expect to take, to Board of Examiners for pre-approval. (Illinois Board of Examiners, 100 Trade Centre Drive, Suite 402, Champaign, IL 61820-7233, 217.531.0950, www.ilboa.org).

**Students must have a total of 30 credit hours of accounting to receive this 36-credit-hour certificate. Depending on how many credit hours were received for the accounting courses required for the certificate (from previous versions of these courses at Oakton or from other institutions), students may need to take more or fewer than two hours of accounting electives. Please note that courses In QuickBooks, Sage 50, and Excel will not count as accounting hours with the Illinois Board of Examiners.
