Support the Department of Accounting



Student helping members of the Chico community with their tax returns through VITA.

Chico’s accounting program is truly exceptional. We produce student success on par with research-level universities, but we do so with a fraction of the budget. We are very proud of the results we produce and the prosperity that our program brings to our students and their employers. The department continues to boast high CPA Exam pass rates and 100 percent career placement into high-level firms and institutions. Student interest in our accounting option is strong—just under 400 declared accounting as their option this year, which is about twice as many as in the 2000s. We are staffed with high-quality faculty who are dedicated to student success. Given the applied focus of our program, all of our faculty are experts in their field and all have practiced accountancy at some point in their career.

It is your generous support that helps maintain our reputation as a top accounting program in the state. I encourage all alumni to please support the Department of Accounting. Your gifts will be used to provide our students with an exceptional accounting education both inside and outside of the classroom. You will be supporting professional growth and networking opportunities for students that will directly influence their career placement in the profession.
