Class Registration

Unlike your undergraduate experience, Mary Knapp will register you for your MSA courses.  The schedule will be created based on how many semesters you will be attending, as well as the track of choice.  Thirty hours of graduate work are required to graduate from the MSA Program.  Fall registration will occur between May-June 2021, at which time Mary Knapp will communicate with you via email or phone to discuss your schedule, which track you will be pursuing (Audit/Assurance, Tax, or Financial Transaction Services) and if you will be doing a 2 or 3-semester program.

2021-22 MSA Curriculum will be posted soon
