The online master’s in accounting program requires a minimum 3.0 undergraduate GPA for admission. Applicants should have an undergraduate degree in accounting or another area of business. However, students who do not have previous accounting coursework will need to complete our foundation courses before beginning core courses to ensure they have the baseline skills for success.

We review all applications holistically and will consider candidates who do not meet all minimum requirements, as long as they are able to showcase their strengths in other areas.
