BS/MS 4+1 Degree Program (BMACC)

Students may apply for the program at any time during their undergraduate studies after completing at least two upper-division core accountancy courses (must include accountancy 331). Upper division core ACCTG courses are defined as ACCTG 331, 332, 333, 334, 431 and 432.

Requirements to Apply for the BMACC

  1. 3.0 overall GPA
  2. 3.0 SDSU GPA
  3. 3.0 CBA Upper Division Major GPA
  4. Satisfactory score on the GMAT
  5. Satisfactory score on TOEFL, if needed

No more than nine units may be in ACCTG 500-level courses to meet the requirements of the master's program. At least 15 units of 500-, 600-, and 700- numbered courses must be in accountancy (to include Accountancy 790) and must include at least 12 units in courses numbered 650 and above (in special cases, nine units with adviser approval). Students attain graduate status for purposes of graduate student registration fees, the professional business fee, financial aid and scholarships after completion of 120 units towards completion of the program. If an undergraduate student has already graduated, they are not eligible to apply for the BMACC program.

Students must achieve at least a 3.0 average in the courses numbered 500 and above and specified on their official program for the 30 unit master's degree. Courses numbered 500 and above must be completed within seven years of the first course completed on the master's degree program. If for any reason a student does not satisfactorily complete the requirements for the Master of Science in Accountancy degree, they will be awarded the B.S. degree in Business Administration in Accounting, upon completion of the requirements for the B.S. degree.
