No exceptions will be made to these requirements.

Additional Admission Information/Requirements

At the discretion of the Accounting Department, students may be admitted on a probationary basis if their GMAT score and/or their average grades on upper division accounting courses fall below 500 and/or B-, respectively.

UNI undergraduate accounting students interested in the Integrated MAcc Program may apply for admission to the program during the semester they are completing Intermediate Accounting II (ACCT 3122). An Application for Admission to Graduate Study must be completed and the student's interest in the MAcc Integrated Program must be indicated on the application itself. The GMAT will be waived for UNI undergraduate students applying to the integrated program if they have a GPA of 3.00 or higher after 75 UNI credits and at the end of the semester in which Intermediate II is taken. If accepted into the MAcc Integrated Program, the student will receive both the B.A. and MAcc degrees upon completion of the respective programs of study.

Once admitted into the integrated program, UNI undergraduate accounting students (who are classified as seniors) may register for a maximum of 12 hours of graduate credit as a senior, with the approval of the student's advisor, the instructor of the course(s), and the head(s) of the department(s) offering the course(s). Graduate credit completed on the early admission basis will not be counted toward the undergraduate degree.

International students and/or individuals without English as a first language are required to demonstrate English language proficiency. Applicants must earn a minimum score of 100 on the TOEFL iBT to be admitted. If the TOEFL iBT is not offered in the applicant's country, then the applicant must take the TOEFL and Test of Spoken English (TSE). Minimum scores on these tests for admission are 600 (or 250 on the computerized version) on the TOEFL and 50 on the TSE. The University of Northern Iowa also accepts the IELTS. If a student takes the IELTS, a minimum score of 7 is required, with no sub-score less than 6.

The MAcc is a full-time program. Accordingly, students are expected to carry a credit load sufficient to qualify as a full-time student for each semester during the program (excluding summers).

The Master of Accounting program (MAcc) is offered on the non-thesis option. A minimum of 30 semester hours is required for the degree, of which a minimum of 15 hours must be at the 6000-level. In addition, there can be no more than 12 credit hours of UNI 5000-level courses included in the program of study and all transfer credit must be at the graduate level (i.e., equivalent to UNI's 6000-level courses).
