- Vermont resident students are eligible to compete for a MAcc Director Academic Merit Scholarship of $2,000. 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 $25,000 through the MAcc Director Academic Merit Scholarships either 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 full scholarship award.
- Students with significant financial need may receive limited funds from the Graduate College. 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 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.
TUITION AND FEES
Tuition and fees are charged by the credit hour. Graduate students are considered full-time when enrolled in 9 credit hours.
