Western Michigan University's online graduate application system allows all students (domestic, international and readmission) to submit required information into one system. General application information for the University, as well as specific requirements for individual programs, are captured in this system.
To be eligible for admission to the Master of Science in Accountancy program, an applicant must have earned:
- A total score of at least 1,100, which is the sum of the GMAT score and 200 times the GPA for the last 60 hours in an accredited undergraduate degree program.
- A minimum GMAT score of 480. (Note: Recent scores of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) are acceptable. Equivalent GRE test scores can be used to meet minimum GMAT score requirements and can be used in formula calculations for admission purposes. See www.ets.org for information on conversion of a GRE score to a predicted GMAT score.)
- A minimum GPA of 2.75 for the last 60 hours in an accredited undergraduate degree program.
Note: A Western Michigan University accountancy major with an average grade point of 3.0 or higher in the following courses (or equivalents) is not required to take the GMAT or GRE: ACTY 3100, 3110, 3130, 3140, 3220, 3240, 4160, and two of the electives (4110, 4140, 4220, 4240, 4310 and 4980).
Students who don’t meet these requirements may be eligible for waivers based on professional or previous academic experience. Students need to contact the chair of the Department of Accountancy to inquire about waivers for the program.
