What kind of scholarships are available?

MAcc Director Academic Merit Scholarships for Vermont resident students are designed to reward exceptional academic performance during the first 15 credit hours of MAcc graduate coursework. These scholarships are awarded based upon the student’s MAcc GPA to date and professional promise. The scholarships partially offset the tuition charges during the final semester in the program.

Vermont non-resident students may be offered MAcc Director Academic Merit Scholarships at the time they are accepted into the MAcc program or after they complete their accounting prerequisite courses. The scholarships require an undergraduate GPA of 3.5/4.0 or higher. The GMAT and TOEFL scores are also considered, if applicable. The scholarships are prorated across the remaining credit hours in the program. A 3.5 graduate GPA is required to continue to receive the scholarship award.

Both resident and nonresident students are encouraged to apply to the MAcc Director for consideration as a graduate student employee within the Grossman School of Business. MAcc students are assigned to one or two faculty members for up to five hours per week per faculty member. Duties include grading and research assistance. Students are compensated for the hours worked each week.

Does the Program provide career services?

Definitely. In the School of Business we offer content through our course work, and connections through our Employer Relations Professional & Outreach Coordinator, as well as through the UVM Career Services.

Do you accept applications for spring admission?

Yes, and the deadline is November 15. Please note, a spring start is best for students who have completed all prerequisites other than intermediate 1 & 2. We encourage most students to start in the fall semester.

What is the minimum GMAT score?

The minimum score is 500, however, students who earn a score below 550 on the GMAT will automatically be excluded from receiving any financial assistance.

Can the TOEFL/IELTS requirement be waived?

This is reviewed on a case by case basis. If requesting exemption, please contact us at: macc@uvm.edu. In your email, please include your length of time at your college/university, field of study, GPA and your GMAT score(s).

We expect our international students to obtain a score above 90.

Do you accept IELTS (in place of TOEFL)?
