Application Materials

In addition to the Graduate School and MAC Application materials, international applicants must also submit the following to The Graduate School: 

  • An official copy of the applicant's TOEFL scores, DI code: 5496.
    This is required unless the applicant has completed a minimum of one full year of full-time study in the United States.
  • More information on TOEFL requirements

International students WITH accounting degrees:

Students must complete three accounting classes that are considered prerequisites for the program in the United States - Business Law (MIE 305), Income Tax (ACC 330) and Auditing (ACC 450). Prerequisite classes must be completed before the fall semester in which you would start the MAC Program. Students are not admitted into a pre-MAC program to complete any missing prerequisite classes.

International students WITHOUT an accounting degree:

Admission is contingent upon completion of a set of seven prerequisite courses which include accounting and other courses that are the equivalent of those required for an undergraduate degree in accounting at NC State.
