Educational Institutions

Crosslin has an unparalleled depth of experience with colleges and universities. In fact, we consider it one of our specialties. We provide audit services to 14 colleges, universities and educational institutions across the state. When you specialize in a particular area, as Crosslin has done in education, a deeply rooted common body of knowledge develops in that area.

As demonstrated by our extensive education customer base, Crosslin is committed to education financial administration and, therefore, has invested in numerous resources to keep our firm up-to-speed on the latest accounting trends in the education and not-for-profit fields. Crosslin would make any and all of these resources available to your management team. Additionally, through our BDO Alliance USA relationship we have available the resources of the BDO Alliance USA Center for Nonprofit Excellence.
