Program Costs 

Lamar University's MSA Program is very affordable when compared with similarly accredited universities. For less than $18,000, you can earn the 34 credit hours needed to complete your MSA including the cost of the Becker CPA review course. For specific cost per hour, please see our cost calculator. 

In addition to other university fees, there is a $50 per credit hour MSA Program Fee. 


Our formula for determining scholarship qualification, like the admission formula, takes into account your undergraduate GPA and your score on the GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test). 

(GPA x 200) + GMAT score = 1,050 

In addition, you must have a minimum 3.0 cumulative undergraduate GPA and a minimum 450 on the GMAT to qualify for scholarships. 

If you have an undergraduate degree in accounting and received a GMAT waiver, you must have a minimum 3.25 cumulative undergraduate GPA to qualify for scholarships.
