The four-year course leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Accountancy in Saint Ferdinand College, is a program approved by the Department of Education, Culture and Sports, by virtue of Government Recognition (R-II) No. 004,s. of 1994, effective school year 1994-1995, issued on March 15 1995.
The program, BSC-major in Accounting used to be handled by the Commerce Department. In school year 1996-1997, the College of Accountancy was formally established as separate entity. On March 14-16, 2001 the college was visited by the PACUCOA team for its preliminary survey. The course offering was renamed BS Accountancy (BSA) with Mr. Isidro A. Siquian as the dean.
When Mr. Siquian left the school to pursue his career in politics, CPA Instructor Nicholas De Leon was appointed in-charge of the College. CPA-Instructors were hired that same year, and today, all accounting subjects in the College of Accountancy and other departments are being handled only by Certified Public Accountants from the College of Accountancy.
The College produced its first batch of BS Accountancy graduates in school year 1999-2000. A good number have become certified public accountants and with each succeeding batch, the ranks of SFC Certified Public Accountants keep growing.
