Wednesday, June 22, 2022

The University of California, Irvine Paul Merage School of Business Master of Professional Accountancy Program (UCI MPAc) and Irvine Valley College (IVC) have entered a student referral agreement whereby IVC students can use selected IVC accounting courses to meet accounting course prerequisites for the UCI MPAc and to raise awareness of graduate program options at the community college level.  

“We are very excited to be offering this program to IVC students,” said Burt Slusher, director, Recruitment and Admissions at UCI MPAc. “For the past several years, IVC has been the number one transfer school to UCI for undergraduate studies. This program will further raise awareness to IVC students of graduate-level opportunities.”  

IVC students who take intermediate accounting, individual or corporate taxation, and/or auditing will be able to use these courses to meet the prerequisite requirements for UCI’s MPAc program. Additionally, as California residents, IVC students will automatically receive a $10,000 tuition discount with $5,000 to $10,000 of additional scholarships potentially available.  

“We are thrilled to expand transfer pathways for IVC accounting students as this provides additional opportunities for them to pursue their baccalaureate and graduate studies,” said IVC President Dr. John Hernandez. “I believe this educational partnership will lead to additional graduate studies for first-generation college students.

UCI is a platinum-level Leaders Circle partner of the Greater Irvine Chamber.
