MAcc Tuition, Scholarships & Other Assistance

Tuition and Fees

Review our tuition and fees for the Master of Accountancy program.

Note: MAcc students generally enroll in 15 credit hours per semester (full-time applies to 9 or more credits). 

International students must be full-time in all but the last semester to complete the program.

View residency policy information.


A majority of MAcc students receive generous scholarships. Both in-state and non-Vermont residents are encouraged to apply early for the opportunity to receive more scholarship funds.

Accelerated Master Program (AMP) students with a 3.2 GPA or higher who are non-Vermont residents receive a scholarship to match a comparable Master of Accountancy tuition rate in their home state. AMP students continue to pay their regular UVM tuition rate until the undergraduate degree is complete.

Please contact the MAcc director to learn more about these opportunities:

  • Grossman and MAcc Director Academic Merit Scholarships are based on GPA, professional promise, GMAT, and TOEFL where applicable. GPA of 3.5 or higher is required for award renewal.
  • Accelerated MAcc students are automatically considered for Grossman Honors Day accounting scholarships.
  • The AICPA offers This Way to CPA scholarships.
  • Graduate student teaching or research assistants may support Grossman School of Business faculty up to five hours per week.
