(Offered only at UNT Dallas)
The BS with a major in accounting control systems is a highly structured degree option designed to meet the needs of certain industry and government employers who seek individuals with a strong basic education in business and accounting, but without the degree of specialization provided by the BS/MS professional accounting program.
Refer to admission requirements listed under Accounting, BS and MS .
Undergraduate students who complete the preprofessional program with a GPA of 2.7 or better are admitted automatically to the undergraduate portion of the professional program. Students who have at least 60 hours of college credit but who lack credit in certain courses in the preprofessional program may be admitted provisionally with deficiencies. Students granted such provisional admission must proceed immediately to remove deficiencies.
