There are resources for students in the Accounting Department to help them make connections and prepare for their careers.
Are you thinking of double majoring or adding a minor that would complement your accounting major? Speak with your academic advisor about good combinations.
The Accounting Department and College of Business offer scholarships to accounting majors on a competitive basis through the WSU Foundation.
After you have completed the Accounting 212 class, consider applying for WSU Foundation scholarships for accounting majors.

Students who are in good standing with a minimum GPA of 2.5 are eligible.
