Admission Criteria

Preparing to Apply

Competition to get into the accounting program is high. Between 85-100 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 prerequisite GPA of admitted students in 2019 was between 3.04 and 4.00.
  • Substantially complete GE courses.
  • Prerequisite GPA and overall BYU GPA are considered.

Students may apply as soon as they have completed the prerequisite courses. Students will begin their junior core courses in the Fall Semester of their junior 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.
