The Fullerton College Business & CIS Division has launched a new program: Cost Accounting Certificate, effective FALL 2020.  According to The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the average salary for a cost accountant is well above the national median salary. Also, the BLS projects 6% job growth for accountants and auditors from 2018-2028. To take advantage of this growth, students should consider gaining a certificate in cost accounting and enter the cost accounting field.  Cost accountants analyze information such as financial documents and performance evaluations to help managers make informed decisions. Cost accountants help cut costs, increase margins, and boost profits. Students in the cost accounting program at Fullerton College gain the skills these professionals use in their daily work. Once you’ve completed the required courses for this program, contact the Division Office at or visit our website: for instructions on how to apply and receive your certificate.
