  • The next Decision in a Day, a one-day admissions event, will be in Fall 2021. A major perk? This event is when we award our largest fellowship awards, including in-state tuition and graduate assistant positions. MACC BY THE NUMBERS: 98% job placement rate (2019-2020 academic year, 100% for U.S. citizens), 98% STUDENT SATISFACTION RATE (according to May and August 2018 graduate survey)


Decision In A Day

Participating in Decision in a Day allows you to waive several application requirements. Instead of submitting an application essay, two letter of recommendations and participating in the required interview as part of the application process, you’ll interview with faculty members and firm representatives at the event. This reduces the time it takes for you to complete your application and provides you with a same-day admission decision well in advance of program deadlines.

When is Decision in a Day?

Fall 2021 dates will be announced in August.

How do I participate?

  • GPA: minimum 3.25 (cumulative OR most recent 60 hours)
  • Major GPA: minimum 3.00
  • GMAT: minimum score of 570 OR received GMAT waiver
  • International applicants:
    100 total OR IELTS: 7.0 total and 7.0 in each section OR received waiver

Once you register online, you will receive instructions on confirming your eligibility and submitting your online application. Please note that there are event-specific instructions for completing your application, and not following these instructions can impact your ability to attend the event. Your event registration expresses your interest in attending the event and does not guarantee you an event invitation.

Email your unofficial transcript(s), GMAT score(s) or waiver request, and TOEFL/IELTS scores (if applicable) to for event eligibility confirmation. Transcripts from non-U.S. schools need to be converted to the U.S. 4.0 scale using a member of the NACES. Study abroad classes taken at a non-U.S. school included on your U.S. school transcript do not need to be converted.

Wait for an eligibility confirmation email and formal invitation to the event before submitting your online application. Event-specific application instructions and required materials will be outlined in this email.

"The presentation was very informative and everyone was keen to get to know all the prospective students and help them determine if UofSC was the best fit for them. The professors who were present displayed a very high level of enthusiasm and confidence in the program. The lunch afterwards gave us the chance to meet professors we did not interview with, but whose classes we would potentially take."

"I come from a family of University of South Carolina graduates and it was my number one choice in graduate programs. I weighed my options at other schools, but I just loved the school atmosphere that the Moore school gives. I chose to come after the Decision in a Day event where I learned more about the program while getting to speak with faculty and accounting firm employees. I felt very welcome from the moment I stepped on campus and that is when I knew that I wanted to get my MACC at UofSC"
