Academic Requirements

You need the following GPA score:

Required score: 3

Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to 3 on a US 4.0 grading scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on a 4.0 scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

General Requirements

  • Students may be provisionally accepted to the program before they have completed or attempted any of the foundation requirements. 
  • However, admission will be provisional and no graduate-only accounting classes may be taken before the foundation requirements have been successfully completed–except students enrolled in their final Foundation course may elect to enroll in graduate classes that do not require that course as a prerequisite.
