3/2 Program

Requirements

Important Note: Because students in the 3/2 program have a graduate classification, students receiving undergraduate scholarships or Pell grants typically lose eligibility for their funding. Students encountering this problem should consult with an academic advisor and consider entering the MAcc program after earning their BSAc degree.

Minimum Standards

  1. Must be a University of Florida undergraduate accounting major.
  2. Completion of, or in the process of completing, at least 80 semester hours of coursework.
  3. GPA of at least 3.0 (rounding not permitted) calculated on all courses taken after the student reaches 60 credit hours.
  4. A minimum GPA of 2.8 (rounding not permitted) in all accounting courses completed at UF (3000 level and above) in semesters prior to graduate admission. Once a student has earned a “C” grade in these courses, repeats of the same course will not be computed in the students accounting GPA if the repeat grade is higher than a “C-“.
  5. Applicants must complete the GMAT. GRE scores may not be substituted for the GMAT. Minimum GMAT scores required are:
    • Total: 500
    • Essay: 4
    • Integrated Reasoning: Not Needed
  6. The timing of the student’s application must meet one of the patterns listed in the “3/2 Program Timing of Application” section below.
  7. There are no exceptions made for students who do not meet all minimum admission requirements. Students denied admission to the 3/2 program are encouraged to improve their academic performance during their senior year and apply for admission to the traditional Master of Accounting program upon completion of the BSAc.
