The School of Accountancy sponsors two student organizations that expand your education beyond the classroom, provide networking opportunities with professionals and encourage community involvement:
Internships allow you to integrate what you are learning in the classroom with practical experience in the workplace. These internships provide you with desirable professional experience and increase your professional connections. Oftentimes, students may turn their short-term internship into a full-time position through commitment to and professionalism in the organization.
Both undergraduate and graduate students may complete an internship for course credit. Speak with your advisor about how to coordinate and complete your internship for credit.
Accounting students also assist in the Low Income Tax Clinic and the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program gaining hands-on experience with tax accounting and serving their community. Volunteers are trained and certified to prepare basic tax returns for taxpayers with limited incomes (generally less than $49,000 per year), older adults and taxpayers who speak English as a second language (ESL). Visit the Public Service Tax Clinics page for more information.
