Bachelor of Science in Accounting
Requirements for Admission
The process for submitting an application to become an undergraduate accounting student depends upon one's classification. Applicants are encouraged to read all policies relating to admission and to meet with an academic advisor to answer questions regarding the admission process. There are four ways to become an undergraduate accounting student:
High School Students and Freshman Transfers from Other Institutions
Students who fall into this category apply directly to the University of Florida Office of Admission. Students who are offered on-campus admission may select accounting as their major. These students remain in the accounting program providing they have complied with all Universal Tracking criteria required of the freshman and sophomore years.
Junior/Senior Transfers from Other Institutions
The UF Online Business Program admits freshman and transfer students. Due to resource limitations, the Fisher School of Accounting is not currently able to offer admission to its Bachelors of Science in Accounting degree program. Students who wish to study on campus are encouraged to consider majors offered by other UF colleges. It is important to note that all on-campus students have the opportunity to minor in business or accounting.
Current UF Freshmen/Sophomores Seeking to Reclassify Their Major to Accounting
Freshman and sophomore students who seek to change their major to accounting after having been enrolled at the University of Florida for at least one semester of study must apply for admission to the Fisher School of Accounting. Students seeking to change major from the Warrington College of Business Administration must also be on track for the WCBA to be reclassified to the accounting program.
Current UF Juniors/Seniors Seeking to Reclassify Their Major to Accounting
Prospective applicants who have completed a minimum of 60 credit hours at UF, (including current registration but not AP/IB/Dual Enrollment credit) are considered juniors or seniors. These candidates must have completed all preprofessional requirements and be able to graduate with no more than 138 credit hours.
