MAcc Admission

Students from all academic disciplines and all levels of professional post-graduate experience are encouraged to apply to be part of a fall cohort group. Admission to the Eberhardt MAcc program is competitive and based on criteria which indicate a high promise of success. Performance in your prior coursework, official GMAT (or GRE) scores, letters of recommendation(s) and any post-graduate professional or managerial work experience will all be considered in your admission decision.


Round 1: Fall Priority Date: JANUARY 15
Round 2: Fall On-time: MARCH 1
Round 3: Fall Late: JUNE 1 

All new submitted applications will be considered on a rolling, space-available basis; therefore, please complete your application on a timely basis to guarantee a review of your application and the possible availability of merit-based financial assistance. Fall classes begin in late August.


Your completed application portfolio must be submitted before the Graduate Business Admissions Committee can render a final decision on your application. Please review the required forms, documents and steps to completing your application quickly and efficiently:

  • A completed GradCAS application
  • Two letters of recommendation (recommended, but not required)
  • One to two years of work experience (preferred, but not required)
  • Official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended (to GradCAS Processing Center)
  • An official Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) Score*
  • International applicants should closely review the International Student Checklist page for additional document and testing requirements

STEP 1: Submit your application including the required application fee and verifications by the appropriate date for the round you wish to be considered.

STEP 2: Send your official transcripts (or transcript evaluation) to the Centralized Application System. Please review the GradCAS transcript help center page closely for instruction on sending your domestic transcripts. For international applicants, transcript evaluations will be sent to GradCAS, but an official international transcript should also be sent directly to Pacific's Graduate Admission Processing office. Contact the Graduate Admission Processing office,, if you have any questions or need clarification.

STEP 3: Arrange to have your GMAT* scores sent to University of the Pacific. Be sure to use the proper program code for your intended program (MAcc).

Please visit for more information on the GMAT and for more information on the GRE. The GMAT is the preferred test but a GRE score (code = 2447) can be accepted if official test results are still available. The GMAT or GRE must have been taken 5 years prior to the date of your completed application.
