MAcc Requirements


Applicants to the MAcc Program are not required to complete all prerequisite courses prior to applying, but should have plans to complete the required prerequisites and provide official transcripts indicating performance in those courses prior to enrolling in the program.


GRE/GMAT Score Reports are required for all international candidates and required for domestic candidates with an undergraduate GPA below 3.25. If you are planning to enroll in the MAcc Program following your senior year, we strongly recommend taking the GMAT during the spring of your junior year or during the summer between your junior and senior year. Test scores must be forwarded directly to the College of William & Mary Mason School of Business by Educational Testing Services (ETS); our school code is 9DDX743.

Academic Records

The Admissions Committee requires official transcripts from each of the college and universities you have attended as a registered student (regardless of the number of courses taken), including summer school, evening classes, etc.


Two professional and/or academic written recommendations specific to your intellectual and professional abilities should be submitted as part of your application file. These can be submitted electronically (via Apply Yourself, the same online service you will use to submit your application) or in paper form via the mail. In the latter case, each recommendation must be sealed in an envelope and the recommender's name must be written across the flap. As with all ancillary application materials, recommendations can be submitted at any time during the application process.

Application and Application Fee

Each candidate is required to submit an on-line application form. In addition, a non-refundable application fee of $100 is required of all applicants. The fee is payable by credit card, personal check, cashiers check drawn from a U.S. bank or subsidiary, or wire transfer. William & Mary undergraduates and alumni, Active-duty military, veterans and those who have served in humanitarian organizations such as the U.S. Peace Corps, AmeriCorps, etc. are eligible for an application fee waiver. Please contact MAcc Admissions to receive a waiver prior to submitting your online application.


An interview is required for admission to the program. In each application period, the Admissions Committee will schedule interviews with the most competitive applicants based on a review of the application materials. We will contact you to arrange an interview once we have reviewed your completed application. Interviews can be conducted by telephone when necessary.


Any materials sent directly to the program instead of submitted electronically, including checks and transcripts, should be mailed to the following address:
