Admission to the five year program does not require the GMAT, essays or letters of recommendation. We recommend students submit their application form when enrolled in ACC 305, 372, or 380. These are the prerequisite classes to the graduate classes that will take the place of ACC 308, 374, and 383.
Classes During Senior Year
In the five year program, students will take three graduate classes during their senior year. These three classes will count toward the bachelor’s degree. Students should note that requirements for graduate classes are more rigorous.
These classes are offered every quarter, except summer. Therefore, students may choose the quarter in which they want to enroll, provided that they meet the prerequisite. Accountancy Honors students, please contact us about class scheduling.
Final Quarter of Senior Year
After the bachelor's degree is completed, students must petition for formal admission into the graduate school of business. The bachelor's degree must be posted to the transcript in order to be admitted. The admission criteria are as follows:
After the three classes during the bachelor’s degree, students take nine additional graduate classes to complete the Master of Accountancy.
