STEP ONE:  Find out what it takes to be admitted to your major.

Major Program Requirements: The Online Electronic Catalog (OEC) is the official University's compilation for all curriculum. The OEC will serve as the basis for major, minor and program requirements for the academic year. Students must follow that catalog for major and program requirements that are in effect at the time they are admitted to the major.

Pre-Admission GPA Calculator: This is an Excel template with embedded formulas to help you determine whether you have met the College of Business admission GPA requirements for your degree program.
