Performance-based Admissions Track (PAT) Program


Performance-based Admissions Track (PAT) Program


Gies College of Business is offering a unique opportunity for applicants who feel their profile may not be strong enough to gain admission into the online master’s in accounting program (iMSA). The Performance-based Admissions Track (PAT) is a first-of-its-kind pathway into the iMSA program. If you’re interested, you simply follow the regular admissions process, indicating that you would like to be considered for the PAT.

You will undergo the same rigorous application review as a degree-seeking student, including a possible interview. If admitted into the PAT, you will take a set of two iMSA courses, and upon completion (cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better, including a B or better in both courses) you will be automatically admitted to the iMSA program as a degree-seeking student. The credits earned in those two courses will be transferred toward your MSA degree. All students admitted to the Performance-based Admissions Track will be assigned an academic advisor and will have support throughout the program.
