    2. Applicants not qualifying for admission as defined in the first option may be admitted based upon a composite score consisting of an index formula that includes both their last 60 undergraduate hours GPA and their test score from either GRE (minimum of 300) of GMAT (minimum of 470).

The appropriate formulaic score for admission is as follows:

Program Overview

The increasingly complex nature of the accounting and controllership functions, as well as the growing responsibilities of the accountant, make graduate study desirable.  The Coggin College of Business provides a professionally oriented Master of Accountancy degree which enables career advancement in the accounting profession and the additional accounting coursework necessary to take the uniform CPA examination under Florida's accountancy law.  The objective of the curriculum leading to the Master of Accountancy (MAcc) degree is to provide the necessary advanced study for those seeking careers in professional accounting as controllers and accounting executives in industry and government, or as independent certified public accountants.


The MAcc program at UNF places utmost importance on reflecting accounting as a modern profession, and the accountant as a modern professional.  Emphasis is given to how accountants relate theory to current problems, and how accountants communicate such information to the various users of accounting data.


The program is designed to allow those who possess a recent baccalaureate degree from an AACSB accredited college, with an accounting major or its equivalent, to complete the MAcc in three semesters. Those who possess a baccalaureate degree in business administration or in some other discipline will be required to take foundation courses to remove any deficiencies.
