Degree Options

Wilson College students who successfully complete the Bachelor of Science in Accounting degree with a GPA of at least 3.0 in their major may choose to enroll in the 3+1 Master of Accountancy program by merely completing the application.

Wilson offers a 3+1 option leading to the student earning both the Bachelor of Science in accounting and Master of Accountancy degrees in four years (some summer coursework may be necessary). In order to qualify for this option, the student must have an overall GPA, as well as a GPA in at least four accounting courses, of at least 3.75 by the end of their sophomore year or at least 3.5 by the end of their junior year.

Students with a degree in another major may choose to pursue a post-baccalaureate certificate in accounting. Those earning the certificate may continue on to the Master of Accountancy program. See more about the post-baccalaureate certificate program here.

Degree Completion

The successful degree candidate will complete 10 courses after meeting the prerequisites for the program, while maintaining a grade point average of 3.0 or higher. Graduate course credit will be awarded only when the student has earned a final course grade of C or better.

All coursework and degree requirements must be completed within six years of taking the first class in the Master of Accountancy program at Wilson College. Courses taken to meet the prerequisites for full admission to the Master of Accountancy program do not count toward this six-year completion requirement until the student has embarked on their second course toward the 10 courses required to earn the degree.
