The Master of Forensic Accounting - ASO Program

The Master of Forensic Accounting - Advanced Standing Option (ASO) will allow DIFA graduates advanced standing for six of the ten MFAcc courses. This means that if you successfully complete the four new MFAcc courses, and an August residency session in 2018, 2019 or 2020, you will be awarded an MFAcc degree.

The University plans to offer the ASO in 2018, 2019, and 2020 only.

In 2018, a concentrated one-term ASO will be offered. Two new courses will be taught online, commencing in early May and finishing in late June, with the other two new courses beginning online in early July and finishing at the residency session from August 14-19.

Each course will be taught one evening per week, but the 2018 program will require a commitment of 2 evenings per week plus the 6-day residency at UTM. In 2019 and 2020, a two-term ASO will be offered in which the four new courses will be offered one-at-a-time, followed by the residency in August.

List of Course

The tuition for the ASO is $10,000 CDN (plus residency accommodation and travel costs), which will bring your total expenditure for the DIFA plus the ASO to approximately the same level of tuition as the MFAcc. The MFAcc-ASO application is available at
