Tax Certificate program admission criteria


Individuals seeking admission to the Tax Certificate program must meet the following conditions:

  • Have an undergraduate degree from an accredited university,
  • Have a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or higher, and
  • Apply and be accepted to the UTA Graduate School as a special student. Applicants for special student status are required to submit a completed "Special Student" application (either online or printed version), official university transcripts showing evidence that the individual holds an undergraduate degree, and pay an application fee to the Graduate School.

Special student admission status is granted for the semester in which the application is submitted. Further enrollment as a special student must be approved on a semester-by-semester basis. Note that admission to the Tax Certificate program does not require a GMAT score or letters of recommendation. Acceptance into the Tax Certificate program in no way guarantees subsequent unconditional admission into a graduate degree program.
