Program Enrollment

After enrolling in a UAC study program, an Orientation Counselor will attempt to contact the student via phone and or email to advise the student about the course work, support procedures and testing, if any.  It is the student’s responsibility to determine whether credits, degrees, or certificates from UAC will transfer to other institutions or meet employers’ training requirements, This may be done by calling the prospective school or employer.

Testing Information

Practice tests and/or final exams exist online for the “Professional Bookkeeper”, “Professional Bookkeeper’s Guide to QuickBooks”, “Professional Tax Preparer”, and “Profit & Growth Expert” programs. After enrolling, the student should go to: www.uacourses.com to access the testing system. Any student who successfully completes the course of study will be awarded an appropriate certificate of completion for the course. A student may take the final exam twice.  Students needing a letter of recommendation should call or email the school.

Grading Policy

Final exams are used to evaluate performance and knowledge and are the basis for the final grade.  A score of 90% or higher constitutes a comprehensive knowledge of course work and may earn a special designation (see below). Nonetheless, certification from UAC is granted for scores of 70% or higher. Scores below 70% result in a failing grade.  No credit toward course completion will be granted for previous educational training or instruction.  UAC is registered under the Postsecondary Proprietary School Act. This does not mean that the state of Utah supervises, recommends or accredits the institution. UAC is not accredited by a regional or national institution recognized by the US Department of Education.  UAC maintains full surety as required by UT state law (bond held by the Division of Consumer Protection).
