The Professional Accountancy Program offers seamless integration of coursework within our B.S.B.A. and M.Acc. degree programs to prepare students for professional accountancy careers. Students are notified of their conditional acceptance along with their financial aid package for the program by November 15 of their senior year. This declaration will be used to alert the Brock School of Business Academic Programs Office and the Registrar’s Office that this student will matriculate into the Professional Accountancy Program. Candidates of this degree program will earn both the B.S.B.A. in accounting and the master of accountancy degree assuming continued successful enrollment.

Students must have a minimum overall 2.50 GPA for program admission, including a 2.50 GPA in all prior undergraduate ACCT courses.

Important Note: Students are required to earn a B or higher in ACCT 410 Income Tax II . Otherwise, this course will be taken as ACCT 510.
