Policies Relating to MAcc Program Admissions

Meeting the minimum standards does not guarantee admission into the Fisher School. Admission is selective. In addition to the published admission requirements, admission decisions consider other important attributes such as, but not limited to, the academic reputation of the undergraduate program attended, the pattern of repeated coursework, drops, withdrawals, preparatory course deficiencies, or the completion of graduate coursework required to be completed in the MAcc.

Special admissions will only be considered where a student has a genuinely outstanding admissions test score or undergraduate record, or has other unique qualifications that are considered to offset a minor deficiency in one of the eligibility standards.

Computing Requirement

This program requires that you have a notebook computer. Students may select a laptop from the vendor of their choice. As you explore different vendors and/or models, please pay careful attention to the Warrington College of Business Administration Computer Requirements.
