Application Requirements

Our holistic approach to admissions.

OHIO's College of Business takes a holistic approach to considering a candidate’s application package, which means we'll consider all parts of your application so you have an opportunity to highlight your strengths.

Application Requirements

To be admitted to Ohio University's Full-Time MAcc program, you must generally meet the following requirements:

  • Regionally accredited bachelor’s degree in accounting or business (non-accounting, business majors will need to complete four additional pre-requisite courses)
  • GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • Two letters of recommendation
  • Current resume
  • Official/certified transcripts (sealed) from all institutions of higher education 
  • Professional statement
  • GMAT/GRE is not required
  • TOEFL or IELTS required if English is not your first language

Application Deadlines

Full-Time MAcc cohorts start in January and May. Admission to this program is selective, with a limited number of seats available for qualified candidates. We seat each cohort through two rounds of admission with dates listed below. Admission decisions are made after each round of admission, meaning that fewer seats are available in the second round. Apply to the earliest round for maximum consideration for the January 2022 and May 2022 cohorts and to be considered for funding opportunities. After you apply, you may be invited to interview for a spot in the program.

Application Deadlines for International Students

International applications require additional time to process. Please submit your application and transcripts by the admission round 1 deadline to be considered for the program.
