Apply to the Master of Accounting Program


The equivalent of an undergraduate degree in accounting from an accredited, 4-year, institution in the U.S. will meet the prerequisite requirement for the MAcc Program.

The prerequisites for other undergraduate degrees achieved in the U.S. include:

  • 24 credits of accounting
  • 6 credits of economics
  • 9 credits of business (consisting of 3 credits each of business law, business statistics, and business elective.
  • 3 credits of college mathematics (meet by taking STBE 137, college algebra or higher, or another math class approved by the program director)

As soon as the student satisfies prerequisites for a MAcc course, a candidate may enroll in a MAcc course.

Academic Status

MAcc students are required to maintain a 3.0 (B) grade point average or above.

At any point in the process of completing the MAcc program when a student falls below a 3.0 grade point average, the student is placed on academic probation. Students must remove themselves from academic probation within their next two semesters.

For each C grade earned, there must be an offsetting A grade. Only two C grades are permitted in the MAcc program. A third C grade or an F grade will result in academic dismissal from the program.

A student dismissed from the program due to academic deficiency may reapply for admission after a minimum of one elapsed semester.
