Washington University Undergraduate Students

If you are a Washington University student who is interested in pursuing a MACC degree, it is recommended that you contact the Associate Director of Admissions, Nikki Lemley.


What does it take to be admitted to Olin's MACC Program?
We review each applicant on a number of factors, looking for individuals with strong academic, professional, and extracurricular activities. We base our selections on your past performance, quantitative skills, and communication skills. To ensure diversity in each entering class, we admit students with various backgrounds, experiences, talents, and interests.
  • You must have completed an undergraduate degree from an accredited institution, comparable to Washington University's four-year bachelor's degree, at the time of enrollment in the program.
  • Although professional work experience is not a requirement for admission, most successful applicants have had significant internship and/or work experience prior to acceptance into the MACC program.
  • Applicants to the MACC program should have taken Introduction to Financial Accounting. Most applicants will have also completed Principles of Managerial Accounting.

All enrolled students will be required to take MACC Foundation Course: ACCT 562. This course is graded on a pass/fail basis. In addition, a minimum 3.0 cumulative grade point average must be maintained for graduation eligibility.

CPA Exam

Along with a 120-credit hour undergraduate degree, the MACC Program offers enough credits to sit for the Uniform CPA Examination in states with the “150-hour rule.”

Meeting CPA requirements is your responsibility. We encourage you to enroll in courses outside the University to fill any gaps in skills, if needed, since each state has different eligibility requirements.

If you plan to take the CPA exam in Missouri, please refer to the Missouri State Board of Accountancy. All state rules are outlined in the table on the site. Information about other state requirements can be found on the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) website at
