Early MAcc

COVID Waiver Policy

Florida Southern is offering additional support for Fall 2021, Spring 2022, and Summer 2022 applicants, by waiving the GRE/GMAT for graduates from regionally accredited institutions with any major who have a 3.0 or higher cumulative GPA.

Get Started Early

In the fall of their senior year, Florida Southern College students in the Accounting program may be eligible to begin the MAcc program.

Stay an extra two semesters at Florida Southern and extend your undergraduate experience while taking graduate-level accounting courses. Once you finish, you’ll be attending two graduation ceremonies on the same day — one in the morning to obtain your bachelor’s degree in accounting, and another that very afternoon to grab that master’s degree.
