MAcc Fast Track FAQs

What is the deadline for fast track admission to the MAcc program?

There is no firm deadline for fast track admission to the Master of Accounting program. Students are encouraged to apply for fast track admission after the completion of their junior year or during their current senior year. Students should aim to apply by the priority deadline for each program prior to the term they wish to start. For example:

  • The priority deadline for the MAcc Summer 2017 start is March 1, 2017.
  • The priority deadline for the MAcc Fall 2017 start is June 1, 2017.

From the point of a completed fast track application, when can I expect an admissions decision?

We ask that applicants allow 1-2 weeks for all admissions decisions from the point of a complete application. Decisions will be made with priority given to applicants whose start term is most recent.

What type of housing is provided?

Housing is not included as part of the tuition for the MAcc program. The program is taught at Loyola’s main Evergreen campus in North Baltimore, which is in close proximity to neighborhoods popular for student housing. More information on housing options near Loyola, in neighborhoods of Baltimore City, or in the surrounding communities is provided at the Graduate Student Services housing page

As chair of the Accounting Advisory Board and a future employer of accounting students, Iā€™m excited this new program will offer a clear path to completion of the 150-hour requirement, in addition to building a pipeline of very qualified CPAs for years to come.

-Christine Aspell, BBA & Partner, KPMB LLP

The new MAcc curriculum is focused on developing deeper technical, communication and decision making skills, providing graduates crucial tools for successful careers in public accounting and beyond.

-Bob Jirsa, BA ā€˜77 Partner, McGladrey, LLP

While earning a Masters will almost certainly qualify a student to earn his or her CPA license, the true benefit such programs provide comes from a truly increased depth of knowledge.
