The Payroll Certificate prepares students for entry-level employment as payroll clerks. Payroll clerks are responsible for handling payroll issues, tax preparation, and year-end reporting for organizations and companies. The one-year certificate program is designed to accommodate those who are employed full-time or are attending college on a part-time basis, seeking to upgrade their existing employment skills or begin a job in payroll. This program will also help prepare those students who want to pursue certification credentials through the American Payroll Association. Students may apply credits earned in the Payroll Certificate toward an Associate of Applied Business degree in Accounting.
