Application Process

Information on the application processes for the One-Year MAcc Program.

Within one to three days after completing your application, the GRADS online application system will send you an automated message that your application was successfully submitted. This message also explains how to make changes to your application. You will also receive an email with your PSU ID and PIN approximately 48 hours later. The PSU ID is a permanent ID number assigned to you starting from the time you are an applicant and will be your ID as a student. Therefore, you should retain these emails for future reference.

Please do not contact the Accounting Department or the Director of the One-Year MAcc Program to check your status. Instead, you should log into GRADS, which will display the status of your application. Once all application materials are received, your status will be updated on your application.

The Admissions Committee allows applicants who submit an on-time application a one week grace period after each application deadline to submit any remaining supplemental application materials. Application packages that are deemed to be complete are then compiled and sent to the Admissions Committee for review (see the “Application Deadlines” page for a definition of a “complete application package”). Incomplete applications will not be reviewed. Decisions are communicated via email and are confirmed in your application portal.

After an offer of admission has been extended, a non-refundable tuition deposit of $500 is due within sixty (60) days to secure your seat in the program. If the deposit is not paid within sixty (60) days, then the Accounting Department reserves the right to withdraw your offer of admission.

Unfortunately, the Admissions Committee is not able to offer feedback on individual application decisions. If you were not offered admission, then you may reapply during the following academic year or during a future academic year. If you do choose to reapply, then you should update your application in the GRADS system by providing updated application materials.  Please note that if you reapply then the application fee must be paid again. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the reapplication process.
