UNC Charlotte Accounting Undergraduate Students

  • 3.0 (or higher) GPA in 3000 and 4000 accounting level courses

General Applicants

  • 3.0 (or higher) undergraduate GPA (UGPA)
  • Strong performance in quantitative coursework
  • Three recommendations from quantitative coursework faculty


To apply for the GMAT/GRE waiver, candidates will need to complete a two-part process:

  1. Complete the GMAT/GRE Waiver form.
  2. Create a Master of Accountancy application via the UNC Charlotte Graduate School's online application portal. You will need to submit your completed application (omitting the testing section).

After you’ve submitted your application, the program will pull your file for review and let you know of our decision. All GMAT/GRE waivers are at the discretion of the Master of Accountancy Graduate Program Director. If candidates are unable to secure the GMAT/GRE waiver, they will be required to submit official GMAT/GRE test scores in their Master of Accountancy application.
