Accountancy

Admission

The M.Acc. program is primarily designed for students who possess an undergraduate degree in accounting or its equivalent. The minimum components of an equivalent undergraduate degree in accounting are outlined below. Applicants deficient in any of these areas are required to successfully remedy the deficiency by completing the appropriate undergraduate preparatory courses or the graduate equivalent. Individual courses may be waived for students who have successfully completed comparable courses at a regionally accredited institution. Waiver of prerequisite course work is a judgment made by the director of the M.Acc. program. It is based on the grade received, credit hours, when the course was completed, course content, focus, and other factors.

Applicants who do not possess an undergraduate degree in accounting may be admitted on a limited basis if space is available. Admission for these few slots is very competitive. To be considered, such applications must be received by April 1 for admission the following Fall Quarter.
Candidates should consult with the M.Acc. Program Director for further details concerning policies and procedures.
