Preparing to Apply
Competition to get into the accounting major is high. About 65 percent of applicants are admitted.
In order to have a strong application, we recommend taking the following steps:
- Earn good grades in the prerequisite courses. The minimum prerequisite GPA to apply is 3.0, but the average prerequisite GPA of admitted students in 2016 was 3.85.
- Take other recommended courses: M COM 320 and ECON 110.
- Substantially complete GE courses.
- Prerequisite GPA and overall BYU GPA are considered.
Most students apply after their sophomore year.
The application is due on the last business day of June at 4:30 p.m. All prerequisites must be completed in order to apply.
