Core Requirements: What To Build Your Schedule Around

Ross Registrar’s Office will pre-load incoming MAcc students into some of the Fall 2024 core. It is YOUR responsibility to make sure you are registering for and completing the appropriate courses, and that electives do not conflict with your core course schedule. If you have not fulfilled all of your requirements by Winter 2025, you will not graduate.

Q. What are my core requirements?
A.  Be sure to review the core curriculum for MAcc students to make sure you understand the degree requirements for the MAcc program.

Q. How can I keep track of which core requirements I have or haven’t completed?
A. Review your Academic Requirements on Wolverine Access to see a degree audit of your record, or schedule a Graduate Student Degree Audit Check appointment with an Academic Advisor.

Q: What core will Ross Registrar’s Office load me into?
A: Ross Registrar’s Office will load MAccs into the following core courses in Fall 2024:

  • ACC 555
  • ACC 601
  • ACC 651
  • ACC 695
  • ACC 630

Q. Are there specific electives I’m required to take?
Yes. MAcc students need to take at least one course from a list of specific electives if they do not waive any of the core courses, or two courses from the list if they do waive any of the core courses. View the core curriculum for MAcc students for the complete list of core and required electives.

Q. How many classes should I plan to take in addition to my core?
A. In addition to the core courses MAcc students need a minimum of 2.25 credits of Core Electives and 10.5 credits of Electives. Due to this MAcc students should plan to take an average of 15 credits total in each of the fall and winter terms. You MUST have a total of 30 graduate credits completed by the end of Winter 2025 in order to graduate!

General Registration

All MAccs will use the general registration process on Wolverine Access to pick up their remaining core and electives and to add/modify class selections. Core must be taken in the assigned term, and therefore cannot be dropped.

Q. How do I find out what courses are being offered and when?
A. You can currently view the full University schedule of classes on Wolverine Access, or via the Office of the Registrar – this site has a helpful CSV file version that can be downloaded and filtered to identify Ross classes. For general overviews of business courses being offered each term, browse the Ross course descriptions.

Q. How do I register for my courses?
A. You will automatically be block enrolled into your core courses in the Summer and Fall terms. To register for elective courses, students will use the University’s general registration process on Wolverine Access. Please refer to How to Add & Drop Classes for more detailed registration instructions.

Q. When is my registration appointment time?
A. Registration for Fall 2024 coursework will happen in the coming months.

Q. Do I need to use the backpack feature in Wolverine Access before registration opens?
A. It is recommended that you do, but it is not required. Backpacking allows you to quickly add those classes all at once when your registration appointment time opens. However, be aware that backpacking does not reserve a seat for you in the class – it is simply a way to put the course in your “shopping cart” so that you can “check-out” quickly. If a class in your backpack does not have room available when your registration time opens, you may have to waitlist yourself, and/or select an alternate open class at that time.

Q. Do I have to register exactly at my appointment time, and when does my registration close?
A. You do not need to register for your elective coursework exactly at your appointment time, but some classes will fill quickly, or seats may be opened to non-Ross students after registration has been open for a week or more, so it is to your advantage to register when your appointment time opens. Once your appointment time opens, you can continue to make changes until the drop/add deadlines for Summer 2024 and Fall 2024.

Q: How can I learn how to use Wolverine Access to drop/add classes?
A:  Wolverine Access is the University website that maintains course registration, student records, address updates, and more. Using your uniqname and password, you can drop or add classes, check your registration or grades, update your address, and request transcripts. If you have questions about how to use or perform certain functions in Wolverine Access you can log in under Student Business, click on Student Center and search the help menu for detailed step by step instructions and tips.
