Tuition & Aid

The Penn State Smeal Master of Accounting (MAcc) program offers competitive tuition and financial support options to assist students in pursuing their accounting education. Regardless of residency, all applicants are charged the same program tuition. The MAcc program also provides merit scholarships for admitted students, with all applicants automatically considered for funding. There is no separate application process, and candidates are encouraged to apply by the third round deadline for full consideration. For further inquiries, please reach out to the admissions team at

The tuition for the Class of 2024 is $37,639. Textbooks and supplies are additional costs to be paid by the student. The same program tuition is charged to all applicants regardless of residency.

A non-refundable deposit of $500 is required to accept an offer of admission to the MAcc program. This deposit will be credited toward your fall tuition payment.

Tuition payment due dates are listed on the Bursar’s schedule. Fall tuition is typically due in August, Spring tuition is typically due in December, and Summer tuition is typically due in May.

It is possible to meet the 150 credit-hour requirement without receiving a master’s degree or any other graduate degree. If you are a Pennsylvania resident, then the tuition cost of taking undergraduate courses beyond those required to meet the Bachelor of Science degree, but which serve to satisfy the 150 credit-hour requirement, may be significantly less than the cost of enrolling in the MAcc Program.

All applicants are automatically considered for funding, and there is no additional application necessary. For full consideration, candidates should apply by the third round deadline.
