Scholarship Information

  • Vermont resident students are eligible to compete for a MAcc Director Academic Merit Scholarship of $1,000. The scholarships partially offset the tuition charges during the final semester in the program. These scholarships reward exceptional academic performance during the first 15 credit hours of MAcc graduate coursework and are awarded based upon the student’s MAcc GPA at the end of the student’s first semester. 
  • Vermont non-resident students may be offered up to $17,500 (no more than $8,750 per semester) through the MAcc Director Academic Merit Scholarships. The initial award is based on GPA, professional promise, GMAT, and TOEFL where applicable. Continuing awards are based on maintaining a GPA of 3.5 or higher during the last semester of study.
  • Accelerated MAcc students are automatically considered for Grossman Honors Day accounting scholarships.
  • A limited amount of Opportunity Scholarship funds are available to self-paying students from underrepresented groups and/or students whose UG degree was the first in family and/or are from an economically disadvantaged background.  Eligible recipients must be US citizens or permanent residents. Please contact the MAcc Director for more information about these scholarships.
  • Limited external scholarships and awards are available to graduate students. Those seeking external funding are encouraged to visit the AICPA’s This Way to CPA website for information about AICPA and other scholarship opportunities.
  • Resident and non-resident 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.

Additional information about graduate student financial aid.


Tuition and fees are charged by the credit hour. Graduate students are considered full-time when enrolled in 9 credit hours. Vermont resident and non-resident tuition and fees are based on the more detailed content found here. (Be sure to click on Graduate Programs with Alternate Pricing near the bottom of the tuition screen.) Domestic students generally enroll in 15 credit hours per semester, international and domestic students taking two years to complete the program may take fewer credits hours per semester. [International students can only take less than nine credits in a semester in the last semester to complete the program.]
