Washington University Undergraduate Students
If you are a Washington University student who is interested in pursuing a MACC degree, it is recommended that you contact the Associate Director of Admissions, Nikki Lemley
What does it take to be admitted to Olin's MACC Program?
We review each applicant on a number of factors, looking for individuals with strong academic, professional, and extracurricular activities. We base our selections on your past performance, quantitative skills, and communication skills. To ensure diversity in each entering class, we admit students with various backgrounds, experiences, talents, and interests.
You must have completed an undergraduate degree from an accredited institution, comparable to Washington University's four-year bachelor's degree, at the time of enrollment in the program.
Although professional work experience is not a requirement for admission, most successful applicants have had significant internship and/or work experience prior to acceptance into the MACC program.
While there are no specific accounting course prerequisites for admission to the MACC program, most applicants will have completed Principles of Financial Accounting, Principles of Managerial Accounting, and often other advanced accounting courses prior to entering their MACC studies.
All enrolled students will be required to take an accounting readiness exam prior to the ACCT 562 Foundations course. This exam must be passed before the start of the second semester. In addition, a minimum 3.0 cumulative grade point average must be maintained for graduation eligibility.
Along with a four-year undergraduate degree, the MACC Program offers enough credits to sit for the Uniform CPA Examination in states with the “150-hour rule.”
Meeting CPA requirements is your responsibility. We encourage you to enroll in courses outside the University to fill any gaps in skills if needed since each state has different eligibility requirements.
If you plan to take the exam in Missouri, please refer to the Missouri State Board of Accountancy. All state rules are outlined in the table on the NASBA.org site. Information about other state requirements can be found on the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) website at http://www.aicpa.org/states/stmap.htm.
