Admissions

Admission into the Integrated MAcc Program is selective, with acceptance decisions based on a variety of factors.

Interested students can apply to the Integrated MAcc Program during the spring of their sophomore year. Applicants must also select accounting as their undergraduate program major using LionPath. A link describing the major application process can be found HERE

Program enrollment is limited. The Accounting Department at Smeal bases acceptance decisions on:

  • Prior performance at Penn State, with particular emphasis on courses that are indicators of aptitude for a rigorous accounting program
  • SAT scores
  • The Department may also require applicants to successfully complete an exam testing mastery of Accounting 211 material and/or may also conduct interviews with select applicants
