The School of Accounting and Taxation offers a number of tuition waivers and private scholarships to our MAcc/MTax students. Scholarships are awarded 3 times a year to our MAcc/MTax students for each upcoming semester based on diverse criteria including but not limited to GPA, GMAT scores, program participation and individual scholarship criteria. Students need to apply for scholarships each and every semester they are interested in being considered. Please keep in mind that we have very modest amounts of money to award and we try to spread the money among the most qualified students in the MAcc/MTax program.
The general process is as follows:
- An e-mail will be sent out to all “active” students with a link/pass code to a scholarship application. This e-mail is sent out 2-3 weeks before the date the application is due to be completed. The approximate application due dates are April 1 for summer semester, August 1 for fall semester, and December 1 for spring semester. The application is fairly short and requests data pertinent to the scholarship award process.
- Applications received on time will be processed and reviewed by the scholarship committee and award recipients and amounts will be decided for the upcoming semester.
- About 2 weeks after the scholarship application deadline, you will receive an e-mail with a letter attachment stating either you have been chosen as a scholarship recipient or were not chosen for the upcoming semester. In regard to private scholarships, the student is given up to 3 consecutive semesters to use the award after which it will be forfeited. Tuition waivers which are typically awarded for fall semester, must be used by the following spring semester at the latest or forfeited.
- For your scholarship monies to be paid out, you must have an active scholarship application on file in the Financial Aid/Scholarship Office. You may also have opportunities for other scholarships as administered by the Financial Aid/Scholarship Office. You will need to contact them for information on the opportunities and how to apply. Also, at present, we are allowed to provide waivers to MAcc/MTax students who are not Utah residents which allows them to pay resident tuition and fees.
