Accounting and Finance Lab

​​​​​​Accounting and Finance Lab 
The Accounting and Finance Lab offers many unique services to assist students in a variety of courses. We promote walk-in tutoring during any open hours and also provide group study sessions for ACFI 340 (Intermediate Accounting I).  

Courses Served

The lab aims to assist students with a broad range of courses. The lab provides tutoring in a broad range of courses. Our primary courses are:
ACFI 100 - Fundamentals of Financial Reporting  
ACFI 101 - Accounting Lab  
ACFI 200 - Financial Accounting  
ACFI 340 - Intermediate Accounting I  
ACFI 350 - Managerial Accounting   
ACFI 385 - Managerial Finance  

Walk-in Services

The walk-in services allow students to utilize the lab whenever it is convenient for them - no appointment is required. During open hours, at least one member of the Accounting and Finance Lab tutor team will be present to assist with non-graded assignments, study sessions and practice problems. We strongly encourage students to come by often, get to know the tutor team and discuss issues as they arise rather than immediately before an exam. The walk-in service offers access to fellow students who have completed similar undergraduate courses and can offer personal perspectives on the various skills learned and study techniques for the courses. 

Group Sessions

Group study sessions allow students who are taking the same course the opportunity to discuss the issues encountered and techniques learned in class consistently throughout the semester. A member of the lab tutor team leads the group; however, students are encouraged to engage and assist each other through demonstration and discussion. Because we believe processing information in groups provides an excellent way for students to further their ability to understand and communicate the subject matter, the Accounting and Finance Lab attempts to provide weekly scheduled group environments when possible. However, for groups to be formed there must be a request from multiple students at the same time and a tutor from the Accounting and Finance Lab who is available to lead the group.
