Undergraduate Admissions to the College of Business
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 in Accounting, General Business, or Marketing.
To be admitted to the College of Business, first year students must have earned a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 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: ACCT 131, 132 (6 credits), Economics 201, 202 (6 credits) and Statistics (3 credits in Mathematics 200 or equivalents).
If you meet all of the above requirements, unless otherwise directed, you should complete the major/minor declaration form found on the Registrar’s webpage and submit it to the College of Business Advising Office. Once approved, the form will be submitted to the Office of the Registrar for your designation as a Business Administration major in the College of Business.
Transfer students, in addition to the requirements above, must have earned a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 in 15 semester hours taken at the University of Mary Washington and have completed a minimum 9 semester hours of required BUAD courses with a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 in those courses to be admitted to the College of Business.
