Admissions Process | Master of Accountancy in Professional Accounting

Find all the information you need to successfully complete your application. This page will provide information about:

  • Application deadlines
  • Tuition and fees,
  • Housing,
  • Application requirements,
  • Admissions events, and more.

Candidates who hold an undergraduate business degree in an area other than accounting are encouraged to apply.

Candidates with undergraduate degrees in arts and sciences are welcome to apply. However, general business credits are required to sit for the CPA exam, in addition to accounting credits. Our program only offers 4 credits in general business. As a result, if the candidate with an undergraduate degree in arts and sciences wishes to pursue a CPA license, the additional general business credits must be obtained from another source.

While accounting-related work experience is not required, some work experience is beneficial. No GMAT is required.
