Students can apply to the program without the foundation courses. Foundation courses will be offered in the summer prior to the start of the MSA program for admitted MSA students who need the foundation course(s).

Foundation courses can be satisfied by courses taken in an undergraduate program with a grade "B-" or better within the last five years.

The two lower division courses, ACCT2251 and ACCT2253 can be transferred from courses taken at other universities or a community college.

The two upper division courses, ACCT3170 and ACCT3220 must be completed at a 4 year university and its business school must be accredited by AACSB.

These four courses are offered regularly at CSUEB each quarter. Non-CSUEB students can take these courses through Open University.
