Admissions Requirements

You must be a current full-time UCLA undergraduate student in good academic standing to apply. If you are not enrolled at UCLA, please check the UCLA admissions webpage.

The Accounting minor provides students with a comprehensive accounting background; admission is competitive and based on overall UCLA grade-point average, grade-point average in pre-admission courses, and grades in Management 1A and 1B. Decisions on admission to the minor are made by the Anderson School Accounting Area.

Applications are accepted in fall, winter, and spring quarters. Non-transfer students must apply subsequent to completing 90 units. Transfer students must apply after completing two academic quarters (excluding summer sessions) at UCLA.

To enter the minor, students must

  • (1) have a minimum cumulative UCLA grade-point average of 3.0,
  • (2) complete all required pre-admission courses with a minimum course grade-point average of 3.0, and
  • (3) receive grades of B or better in Management 1A and 1B. Students who do not earn a B in 1A and 1B must take MGMT 120A and earn at least a B. MGMT 120A will not be included in the preparation GPA calculation.

If Management 1A and/or 1B are not taken at UCLA, students must complete courses 120A and 122 prior to admission to the minor earning a B or better in both courses. Students must earn a grade of C or better in all other preparation courses.

Repetition of more than one pre-admission course or of any pre-admission course more than once results in automatic denial of admission to the minor.

Satisfying these requirements does not guarantee admission to the program, as only a limited number of students are admitted each year.
