Incomplete Applications

If your application is not complete (for example, missing self-reported test scores, essays or other items, illegible scanned transcript) you will be informed via your application status page. If you do not provide a completed application by the deadline, your notification may be delayed. 


Notifications are issued on a ongoing basis. Please allow up to 8 weeks after the deadline for the Admissions Committee to send out notifications.

Notification possibilities are as follows:
  • Offer of admission
  • Interview invitation
  • Waitlist offer
  • Denial of admission

All decisions made by the Admissions Committee are final.


The Admissions Committee conducts a limited number of interviews for the Masters in Accounting program. Interviews are available by invitation only, and are not required to be admitted. Interviews are often conducted in person but may be offered virtually. Interviews typically take between 15-30 minutes.

If the Admissions Committee invites you to interview, you will receive the invitation and scheduling information via email. 

The interview is evaluative and provides the Admissions Committee with more information on your qualifications, career goals and personal characteristics. After the interview, it will typically take up to three weeks to receive a post-interview decision.
