BS in Business Administration: Admission

Undergraduate Admissions to the College of Business

The College of Business faculty approved a new admissions requirements on March 9th, 2011.

Incoming students interested in pursuing a program of study in business will initially be designated as “pre-business.”  Normally this designation will be held for no more than the first two years.  After admission to the College of Business, a student may declare a business major. 

To be admitted to the College of Business, students must have earned a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or better after completing at least 27 college credits.  Additionally, applicants will have completed the following courses for the College of Business and have earned an average GPA of 2.5 in these five courses: Business Administration 131, 132 (6 credits), Economics 201, 202 (6 credits) and Statistics (3 credits in Mathematics 200 or equivalents). 

Transfer students will be evaluated on an individual basis.  Many transfer students will meet the requirements for admission to the College of Business upon matriculation at the University.  

At the end of each semester, students who have met the requirements for admission to the College of Business will automatically be admitted if they hold a pre-business designation.
