Admission to the Accounting Program requires junior standing, a cumulative overall grade point average of 2.5 or better, no grade lower than “C” in 200-level Accounting courses, and/or permission of the Department Chair. A student whose performance has been marginal or who has not completed enough courses at Creighton to provide a basis for judgment, may be accepted with probationary status or deferred until the probability of successfully completing the Program can be determined. Retention in the Program is conditional upon demonstrating competence in upper division accounting courses.

Accounting majors must take (at minimum) one business elective outside of the accounting area. A business elective is any upper division business class (EXCEPT MKT 319, MGT 301, MGT 385 and FIN 301). Business foundation classes are not considered business electives. If a student double majors, courses taken as part of the second major fulfill the business elective requirement. Please note: ACC 491 and ACC 538 do not count toward the major.
