Prerequisite question [#permalink] New post 21 Jun 2011, 18:27
Hi everyone! Had a quick question that I'm hoping anyone who has been through the admissions process can help me out with.


Under the prerequisites tab, it states that a list of accounting courses must be completed or in progress by the time the application is submitted. I have only recently declared my accounting minor, and will finish all of the prerequisite courses by June 2012, when I graduate. My question is: am I still eligible to apply to USC? I'm worried about the distinction between "in progress" and whether that can apply to courses that I'm "planning" to take. The accounting minor is sequential, so it's not possible at all for me to jam all the courses into this fall semester, even though I'd really like to.
This question applies to many other schools, but USC is my #1 (dream) so I used it as this example.

Thank you so much for any help!

"In progress" refers to situations where, during the semester that you are applying to the MS program, you are registered for those courses (no grades yet received, etc) and as a result, they show up on your transcript.

Can you apply starting in the summer quarter? The list of prerequisites is much shorter (1 accounting class along with Micro or Macroeconomics), presumably because they squeeze in a bunch of prereqs during that summer quarter. That's what I'm doing, because I will only have 4 accounting courses done by June of next year...

I suppose I could, but by graduation I would have completed all the prerequisite courses to start Fall semester. My concern was that my "in progress" courses for Spring quarter would not have shown up on my transcript as "in progress" because that's way before registration! I contacted the admissions department though, and they said I was fine to apply for the Fall semester.
