Entrance Requirements
Students must meet the following application eligibility requirements to be considered eligible to apply. Meeting these minimum requirements does not guarantee admission to the BBA Management major. 
• Be enrolled at UGA.
• Have a 2.60 earned overall grade point average (transfer and UGA coursework combined; based on UGA academic record by application deadline).
• Be in good academic standing (2.00 or higher UGA GPA at application deadline or no UGA GPA for a new transfer student).
• Completion of BBA General Education Core Curriculum I-VI (students may be enrolled in coursework that fulfills these requirements during the semester in which they are applying).
• Exemption or successful completion of MATH 1113 or MATH 1113E or higher-level MATH course (passing grade or exemption must be posted to your UGA academic record by application deadline).
• Successful completion of ACCT 2101 or ACCT 2101E or ACCT 2102H (passing grade must be posted to your UGA academic record by application deadline).
• Completed or currently enrolled in MSIT 3000 or MSIT 3000H or MSIT 3000E.

IMPORTANT: If any of the above referenced coursework has not been posted to your UGA transcript, proof of coursework must be attached to the BBA application prior to the application deadline. Applicants who do not provide proof of coursework by the deadline will become ineligible. 

There is no guarantee of acceptance to any major in the Terry College of Business. Applicants are evaluated on the High-Demand Major Selection Criteria listed below. Acceptance in the major is contingent on satisfactory completion of in-progress work. Students who withdraw from any of the above required courses are at risk of having their major admission rescinded. 
HRLine

High-Demand Major–Selection Criteria
  • Grades in Accounting courses – Final course grades in (ACCT 2101 or ACCT 2101H or ACCT 2101E, or equivalent) and (ACCT 2102 or ACCT 2102H or ACCT 2102E, or equivalent). Applicants currently enrolled in ACCT 2102 will be evaluated based on the grade in ACCT 2101

  • Grades in Economics courses – Final course grades in (ECON 2105 or ECON 2105H or ECON 2105E) and/or (ECON 2106 or ECON 2106H or ECON 2106E) are considered. Applicants currently enrolled in one of these courses will be evaluated based on the grade in the completed course. 

  • Grades in Mathematics courses – Final course grades in (MATH 1113 or MATH 1113E), MATH 2200, (MATH 2250 or MATH 2250E), and MATH 2260 are considered. 
     
  • Standardized Testing – Students are required to submit ACT or SAT and sub-scores to the University prior to being considered for admission to a major in the Terry College. In addition to required ACT/SAT scores, students may also supplement their application by submitting a score from the ETS Proficiency Profile if they believe their ACT/SAT scores do not represent their current performance level. The ETS Proficiency Profile is a standardized, multiple-choice assessment of the academic skills – reading, writing, critical thinking, and mathematics. Contact University Testing Services to schedule an appointment. The ETS may be taken a maximum of twice per major application cycle. 

  • Statement of Purpose – A brief essay (300-400 words) in which the applicant describes his/her interest in the major and his/her future goals. 

  • Grades in prefix courses – Grades in courses previously completed in the prefix of the major to which the applicant is applying can be considered, but are not required, for admission to the major. Grades in the College’s Foundation First courses (FINA 3000, MARK 3000, MGMT 3000), as well as MSIT 3000, can be considered by all majors if completed. Consideration of the Foundation First courses mainly applies to students seeking to change or add Terry majors. It is beneficial to take these Foundation First courses at UGA. 

  • Terry Direct – UGA students who are in good standing with the Honors Program and apply to the Terry College of Business will be guaranteed their first choice of a first (primary) major within the Terry College. This guarantee does not apply to second, double, or co-majors. 

    These requirements and criteria are subject to change in future academic calendar years.
