- What semesters do you accept new students?
The MAcc program admits students during the Fall, Spring and Summer terms. Because of the way in which the curriculum is offered, transfer students are encouraged to apply for summer admission.
- Do you offer conditional admission?
No. All applicants must meet full admission requirements and may not take accounting classes unless they are officially admitted to the program.
