Almost there. Wow! look at us being popular. Hang tight, it is taking a bit longer than usual.

The flexible schedule allows working professionals to pursue their degree at their own pace: students need to complete the 12 semester units over a 5-year period. While a taxation-related MS, MBA or LLM degree from Golden Gate University is highly preferred, students with tax degrees from other schools may be accepted upon approval of the dean.

Important Note:

Graduate certificate admission is limited to domestic students. Students that plan to study on an F or J Visa may apply to graduate programs only.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

  • Applicants must hold a tax master's degree.
  • Applicants should hold a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited US institution or the equivalent from a recognized foreign (outside the US) institution, and provide official transcripts.
  • Master's degree holders only need to submit transcripts from previous graduate programs. However, applicants are encouraged to submit all transcripts to maximize transfer credit.
  • Applicants whose native language is not English must meet the English Language Proficiency Admission Requirements.
  • Applicants who earned a CPA license can waive the English Language requirement.
  • Applicants with an undergraduate GPA below 3.00 should submit a statement of purpose and a resume.
    The statement of purpose should address the circumstances that may have led the applicants to poor academic performance, what had changed and why they think they'll be successful now.
  • F-1 Visa holders are not eligible.
