Admission to Walker College of Business
Bachelor of Arts in Economics (BA)
BA-Economics majors will be admitted upon officially declaring a major. This admission status indicates that the student is admitted to his/her degree-granting collge; it does not give the students access to unlimited business courses.
Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA)
(the following information applies only to BSBA students)
BSBA business majors must meet specific requirements to be admitted to the College of Business. Unless a student is admitted to the COB through the BSBA program, there are restrictions on the number and types of business courses for which the student is eligible to register. Students who are not yet officially admitted to the College of Business through the BSBA program can take any business courses at the 1000 and 2000 level, but no more than five business courses at the 3000/4000 level.
If you have not already taken the Basic Computer Skills Proficiency Test, you should take it as soon as possible. Students who do not pass this test after two attempts must make a passing grade in CIS 1026 (which will count as elective credit). You are not required to take the test if you prefer to take the course. A link to the computer test information and registration is online at www.advising.business.appstate.edu.
Transfer students who enter ASU having met all course requirements and earned hours for admission to the College of Business must establish a GPA of 2.5 based on a minimum of 12 graded hours at ASU before being admitted to the College of Business. While working on establishing the required GPA, these students can take up to five business courses at the 3000/4000 level. First semester transfer students will need permits from the COB Advising Center to waive the 2.0 GPA requirement on 3000/4000 level business courses.
There is no application process for admission to the College of Business. All students who meet the requirements for admission will be automatically admitted (occasionally, especially for transfer students, certain admission requirements are not recognized by the programming that admits the student. In these cases, the students should contact the COB Advising Office for assistance with admission). Students must have officially declared a business major in order to be admitted to the College of Business.
While requirements for admission to the Walker College of Business typically do not change significantly from year to year, there will occasionally be changes. Students must meet the requirements in place in the catalog under which the student is graduating.
