Requirements for Admission
The Fisher School of Accounting applies the same admission standards to students who are currently enrolled at the University of Florida (natives) and those students seeking admission to the Fisher School of Accounting from other academic institutions (transfers). An applicant pool is used to select candidates for admission. All applications that meet the minimum standards are placed into a pool from which the most qualified are selected for admission each term. A faculty committee is responsible for admission decisions. Due to limited capacity, it is unlikely that all students who meet the minimum standards for inclusion into the applicant pool will be admitted. Because of this process, most admission decisions are not made until well after the application deadline has passed. Minimum requirements depend on the prospective candidate’s academic standing.
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 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
Junior college transfers, and transfers from four year academic institutions, are a vibrant component of the BSAc Program. Prospective applicants should pay careful attention to complete all minimum requirements in order to be considered for admission. Though not a minimum admission requirement, transfer applicants are strongly advised to complete Survey of Calculus 2 (MAC2234) or equivalent prior to admission. Transfer students lacking this course are required to complete it during their first semester on campus (potentially delaying progress towards graduation).
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.
