Master of Accountancy (MACC)
Admission to the Master of Accountancy at Westminster’s Bill and Vieve Gore School of Business is based on an evaluation of undergraduate work, accountancy acumen, and leadership potential. Students may enter the program at the beginning of the Fall, Spring, or Summer semester.
A candidate for admission must submit the following materials to the Office of Graduate Admissions:
- Completed application form
- $50 application fee
- Statement of intent describing candidate’s interest in graduate study in accounting and information systems
- Two professional recommendations from current and previous supervisors and/ or professors. Recommendations from supervisors preferred. Please use forms provided by the Office of Graduate Admissions and include a written statement on company letterhead submitted by recommender.
- Professional résumé detailing job titles, areas of responsibility, professional training, and other related activities
- Official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended showing proof of baccalaureate degree earned in accounting from a regionally accredited institution. Applicants who do not have a bachelor’s degree in accounting must demonstrate successful completion of the following courses from a regionally accredited institution with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher: Accounting Principles, Intermediate Accounting I, Intermediate Accounting II, Auditing, Accounting Information Systems, Individual Income Taxes, and Advanced Accounting.
- Employer letter of support form

When an individual’s application file is complete with required documents and according to application dates, the application materials are evaluated by the MAcc Admissions Committee. Once accepted to the program, the applicant must submit a $250 tuition deposit in 30 days or less, which guarantees a place in the entering class. Westminster operates rolling admissions, so it is best to apply as soon as possible. To preserve the faculty to student ratio, space availability in each class is limited. Westminster College reserves the right to close the class earlier than dates specified if enrollment goals are met before those dates.
