Department Website

A minor in accounting provides students with a background in financial and managerial accounting. The knowledge gained through this minor can be applied to many career paths - those directly related to accounting and finance as well as careers in other settings including corporate, small business and not-for-profit organizations.

Special offerings for each semester may be found in the Schedule of Classes.

Requirements for the minor in Accounting

Elective courses


Four additional courses in any 3000- or 4000-level accounting (ACC) courses.

Additional requirements


The minimum grade of C must be earned in each course in the accounting minor and in the prerequisites for each course. This minor is open to all students except accounting majors.

To earn this minor, and to take 3000- and 4000-level business classes, non-business students must meet with the minor coordinator and have an approved minor authorization form detailing the courses and the prerequisites required for the given minor. Once approved for the minor, students must take all the remaining courses in the minor at Oakland University. Students must complete the prescribed courses for the minor with a grade of C or better in each course and the prerequisites for each course. Transfer students planning to earn a minor must earn at least nine credits toward the minor at Oakland University; at least six of these nine credits must be in courses at the 3000 level or above.
