The following information applies to transfer students entering the University beginning in Summer and Fall 2017.
Please be advised that the Ole Miss School of Business Administration has additional standards to declare a specialty major beyond UM admission. Your academic advisor will guide you through the degree requirements for the major you intend to pursue.
All students who intend to pursue a B.B.A. degree will be admitted to the university as a "General Business" major.
In order to progress and have your status changed to a specific major within the School of Business, you will need to meet the following requirements:
You will be eligible to declare a specialty major after you have completed all Freshman level classes, plus Accounting I (Accy 201), Principles of Microeconomics (Econ 202) and either Legal Environment of Business (Bus 250) or Business Communications (Bus 271). For specialty majors (e.g. Marketing, Management, Management Information Systems, or Finance), the GPA on these 39 hours must be a 2.25 or higher. Students who do not meet this requirement will remain in "General Business".
Required coursework may be completed at the University of Mississippi or another school offering equivalent coursework. School of Business degree requirements can be found here - click
In addition, a student who has qualified to move from "General Business" into the degree program of choice must notify the Office of Admissions prior to orientation, or notify the School of Business Advising Office after enrollment at the university. This change of degree will not take effect automatically. A supplemental application can be found on the Ole Miss School of Business Administration website at Transfer Change of Major Form
If you have any questions regarding your specific degree program, please contact the School of Business Advising Office at 662-915-5820 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to welcoming you to the University of Mississippi and helping you achieve your educational goals.
