Admission Decisions

The admission committee makes decisions on a rolling basis.

Applicants will receive an email stating the decision has been posted to the ApplyYourself account. In addition, if admitted, the candidate will receive an email from the MS Accounting office providing additional information about finalizing the admission process.

Applications are kept on file for one year, so an applicant may reapply for the subsequent year using the majority of the application materials previously submitted (transcripts, recommendation letters, test scores as long as they are still valid). A new application must be completed and, if documents from the previous application are being used, the applicant must notify the advisor so documents can be retrieved.
