Master of Accountancy Application Checklist & Deadlines

When you successfully complete our Master of Accountancy Program, you meet the requirement to sit for the CPA exam in Missouri. While most students complete both their undergraduate degree and graduate degree at Truman, you may also enter the undergraduate program as a transfer student or enter the Accountancy graduate program after receiving an undergraduate degree at Truman or another university.

Application Checklist

  • Application
  • $40 Application Fee (must be paid online)
  • Official GMAT test scores (send directly to Graduate Office):
    • Truman Accounting or Business Administration graduates: GMAT not required.
    • All other students: GMAT scores at or above the 50th percentile. Consideration is given to students scoring below the 50th percentile who have a cumulative accounting GPA of at least a 3.0 for accounting courses taken at AACSB accredited schools.
  • Current resume (uploaded in online application)
  • One letter of recommendation (non-Truman undergraduate students are encouraged to submit three letters of recommendation). Applicants enter recommender’s contact information who will be sent a link to do the recommendation.

  • OPTIONAL: Graduate Teaching/Research Assistantship (GTRA) application (available as part of online application)
The Master of Accountancy degree program is offered both on campus and online. Regrettably, we are unable to consider applications for fully-online programs by individuals who reside outside of the United States and its territories at this time.  International applicants are still encouraged to consider our face-to-face program in Accountancy located on campus in Kirksville, Missouri.
