Registration Information for Fall 2023: MAccs, Class of 2024

To learn more about the process for course registration for Fall 2023, be sure to review all of the information below carefully!

Core Requirements: What To Build Your Schedule Around

Ross Registrar’s Office will pre-load incoming MAcc students into some of the Fall 2023 core. It is YOUR responsibility to ensure that your electives do not conflict with your core courses.

Q: What core will Ross Registrar’s Office load me into?
Ross Registrar’s Office will load MAccs into the following core courses in Fall 2023:

  • 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?
In addition to the core courses MAcc students need 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 2024 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. Do I need to use the backpack feature?
 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: When is my appointment time?
 Registration for Fall 2023 coursework will happen in the coming months.

Q: Do I have to register exactly at my appointment time, and when does my registration close?
You do not need to register 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 Fall 2023.

Q. How do I find out what non-Ross courses are being offered?
The full University schedule will be available beginning March 1, 2023 (including Ross and non-Ross courses) on Wolverine Access, or via the Office of the Registrar (this site has a helpful .CSV file version that can be downloaded/sorted for specific units, days, times, etc.).

Important Rules and Policies: All the stuff you need to know

It is each student’s responsibility to review the rules and policies carefully. Please read the course registration rules and policies.

Q. I still have questions. Is there someone I can talk to?
