A student and faculty member discuss a paper.


All students admitted to the Trulaske College of Business are considered undeclared business or accountancy until they apply to the upper level program of their choice (management, marketing, economics, finance and banking or accountancy). Students interested in the business administration program will typically apply to the upper level second semester of their sophomore year or first semester of their junior year. Students interested in the accountancy program will apply spring semester of their sophomore year.

To be eligible to apply to the upper level, students must meet the minimum cumulative GPA of a 2.6 (3.0 for accounting), have completed or be in progress of completing ten required courses (for students who started previous to Fall 2016), and have completed between 45 and 60 hours of credit. Starting with the Fall 2016 incoming class, students will need to have completed or be in progress of completing 12 required courses. Students also must complete 70 Professional Development Program points by the end of the semester that they apply to the Upper Level. Meeting minimum qualifications DOES NOT GUARANTEE ADMISSION into an upper level program. Admission is competitive base on students’ GPA and upper level capacity.
