Once all documents have been received, your application will be reviewed by the MACC admissions committee. Applicants are evaluated based on the materials submitted, and a decision is typically communicated within one week of the application deadline. For rolling admission, applications are evaluated on a case-by-case basis, and decisions will be communicated within two weeks of receiving a completed application. The MACC admissions committee may request additional information.
Program Entry Dates
You can begin our program in the spring, summer or fall semesters. We encourage students without a summer internship or students planning on participating in recruiting (already have a job offer) to take at least one summer class to begin the MACC program.
We do not require work experience for admission into our program. Most of our MACC students enter our program directly after completing their undergraduate degree.
Accounting/Business Degree Not Required
We do not require applicants to have an undergraduate degree in accounting or business for admission to our program. Students must either complete our required prerequisite courses prior to entering or within our program. For a list of the required prerequisite courses, please visit our curriculum page. We also offer the MACC Summer Boot Camp for students without an accounting background wanting to complete our program in 18 months or less.
All students admitted to our MACC program are considered for financial awards/scholarships. For more information on merit-based financial awards, including fellowships, scholarships and graduate assistant positions, please visit our Financing Your MACC page.
Seat Fee/Enrollment Deposit
To secure your seat in our MACC program, we require a $1,000 seat fee. The seat fee is nonrefundable and is applied to your first semester's tuition payment (deposit/pre-payment of tuition). If you fail to pay the seat fee, there is a chance that you could be removed from any registered classes due to space capacity issues. It is strongly encouraged that you pay your seat fee as early as possible to secure your seat in our program.
