Administrative Assistant

secretary-2199013_640The Administrative Assistant program is a combination of the Secretarial Studies program and the Accounting program.

You may do either secretarial studies first or the accounting program. We recommend you start with the one you have the most interest in.

Admission Requirements

To be eligible for admission to the Administrative Assistant program, you must complete either the Accounting or Secretarial studies program.
