150-hour Integrated BSAcc/MAcc Program Admissions

Undergraduate Level

Students who are admitted to MU and indicate an interest in studying accounting may visit the Undergraduate Advising Office of the College of Business (111 Cornell Hall, 573-882-7073).

The 150-hour Integrated BSAcc/MAcc program is open to qualified undergraduate students at Mizzou as well as qualified undergraduates who transfer to MU from other colleges and universities. Interested students not already admitted to Mizzou should visit the Office of Admissions website.

Undergraduate students are also responsible for completing all Trulaske College of Business requirements. A student must first be admitted to the Trulaske College of Business before they are eligible to apply to the 150-hr Integrated BSAcc/MAcc program.

Admittance to the 150-hour Integrated BSAcc/MAcc accountancy program requires the following minimum standards. Meeting minimum standards does not guarantee admission.

Admission decisions are made in the spring for fall admissions only. Admission cutoffs are revised each year in order to accommodate approximately 160 students annually. This is the number of students that can be served with current authorized faculty staffing and still maintain program quality and meet accreditation standards. Students meeting the minimum requirements are selected for admission based on their cumulative GPA of record until the enrollment limit for that year is reached. Admission is competitive; in recent years an overall cumulative GPA above a 3.0 was necessary to be admitted to the 150-Hour Program.

Students admitted to the 150-Hour Program must maintain a cumulative UM grade point average of 3.0 or higher for coursework completed subsequent to admission to the 150-hour program to be considered in good standing in the program and may be placed on probation.

Applications are open February 1-15
