3 + 1 Accounting Pathway (Concurrent Degree Program)
The 3+1 Accounting Pathway is an accelerated program for accounting majors, an opportunity for qualified incoming freshman students interested in accounting to complete within four years the bachelor’s degree in accounting concurrently with the master of accounting degree. Through an evaluation of college-ready credits (e.g., Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate programs), high-achieving students are fast-tracked for admission to the Lundquist College of Business one full year before their contemporaries. Students in this program may complete their undergraduate degree in three years, with the fourth year used to complete the master of accounting program. Students must submit applications for admission to the 3+1 Accounting Pathway by October 31 of the fall trimester of their freshman year.
