  • ASU cumulative GPA between 3.25 – 3.49 — application fee waiver and GMAT waiver
  • ASU cumulative GPA of 3.5 and above — letter of recommendation waiver, application fee waiver, and GMAT waiver

Non-ASU undergraduate applicants

If you have completed your undergraduate degree at an AACSB-accredited undergraduate accounting program with a 3.25 cumulative GPA or higher and would like to request a GMAT waiver, please detail your reasons in the optional essay question #2.


The MACC program requires that you meet certain prerequisites. ASU accounting graduates will meet all coursework requirements; graduates of other institutions should review the list of prerequisites and ensure that they meet the standards for admission.

Essay questions

Help the admissions committee learn more about you, your background, and your goals. These short essay questions help us evaluate students beyond the black and white of test scores and GPA requirements.

The following materials must be submitted to ASU Graduate Admissions after completing the online application.

GMAT or GRE test scores

GMAT or GRE scores are required for admission to MACC program, and are sent directly to the school by the Graduate Management Admission Council, which administers the test.

Use the following GMAT institutional code:

  • Master of Accountancy: 0GZ-1R-96
  • If you are submitting GRE scores, ASU's institutional code is 4007.

    Dependent on your academic or professional background, you may be eligible to have this requirement waived. Contact for more information.

    Official transcripts

    If you attended ASU, you do not need to submit ASU transcripts. Otherwise, you must have one set of official transcripts from every college and university from which you earned a bachelor’s degree or higher sent to ASU Graduate College. ASU accepts official transcripts that are original academic credentials issued by the registrar of the institution attended, bearing the original raised or colored seal of the institution and the signature of your institution's registrar, academic official, or recognized international organization.

    You may either have the original institution send your transcripts, or you may wish to collect all of them and send them together. In either case, use the following mailing information:

Applying as an international student

The application process for international students is the same as for domestic students, with the exception of submitting proof of English proficiency (for students whose native language is not English). After admission, you will also be required to obtain a U.S. visa, which includes submitting a graduate financial guarantee.

All international transcripts must be submitted in their original language accompanied by an official English translation. Translations must be literal, complete versions of the originals and must be translated by a university, government official or official translation service. You may not complete your own translation. Photocopies and notarized transcripts are not acceptable.

Applying as a non-accountancy ASU student

The PATHWAY PROGRAM is for students with non-accountancy undergraduate majors who are interested in obtaining a Master of Accountancy or Master of Taxation degree. The PATHWAY PROGRAM provides students a "shortcut" (approximately 2 semesters) to completion of the MACC/MTAX prerequisite courses.
