Application & Program Requirements

An undergraduate degree is required for admittance into the MAcc program. The admission process is the same whether you are planning to take courses in Mankato or at the Edina Campus.

Students must first obtain admission from the College of Graduate Studies and Research. The application is available here.

After review of your application, the admissions committee, at their discretion, may also request the submission of two letters of reference. The committee may also request that the applicant participate in an interview with the Director of the MAcc program.
