We're test-optional

The MAcc program is test-optional. Test optional means we allow you to opt-out of submitting GMAT or GRE test scores to be considered for admission. Applying to the MAcc program as test-optional does not guarantee a favorable admission decision, and your application will be reviewed holistically. We encourage prospective students to take the GRE or GMAT and share scores with us if you think they reflect your ability and potential.
