Welcome from Director

Welcome to the Gerald W. Schlief School of Accountancy at Stephen F. Austin State University. We are an outstanding school where student success is our most important mission. I invite you to take a closer look at our school and all that we have to offer, from our undergraduate, Master of Professional Accountancy and Stand-Alone Master of Professional Accountancy programs to our internship opportunities. Our faculty is involved in research and shares a passion for teaching. Each year we host an Accounting Career Fair and an Awards Banquet which provide students opportunities for interactions with professionals. Additionally, professionals are frequently on campus as guest speakers in classes, Continuing Professional Education Programs, Accounting Club and Beta Alpha Psi. If you experience any problems or have questions, feel free to talk with any of the faculty members.
