Flexible MAcc Program

The Flexible Master of Accountancy Program is designed with the working professional in mind and allows the student to complete the program by attending classes primarily offered in the evening.  Flexible MAcc Program students can start the program from their current educational attainment and complete Accounting and Business prerequisites as a part of the overall Master of Accountancy program, if necessary.  Full-time students with an undergraduate Accounting degree can complete the 30-credit hour program in as little as 12 months, while part-time students can choose a pace that fits their schedule and time constraints.

Successful Completion of the Flexible MAcc Program

See the recommended Program of Study to plan your coursework in the Flexible MAcc Program, depending on your undergraduate preparation for this degree.

Students admitted to the Flexible MAcc Program must maintain a cumulative Washburn grade point average of 3.0 or higher for coursework completed subsequent to admission to be considered in good standing in the program. If a student's cumulative GPA subsequent to admission falls below the 3.0 minimum, the student is placed on probation and given one semester to return to good standing. In unusual cases, the MAcc Program director may grant one additional probationary semester. A student who fails to return to good standing is subject to dismissal from the program.  Students may petition for exceptions to this policy in unusual cases.
