Admission Requirements – Undergraduate Degrees

Undergraduate students interested in a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in the School of Business must first apply to the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.

Admission Requirements

After admission to UA Little Rock, students must apply for and be accepted into the School of Business. If you’re interested in pursuing a major within the School of Business, schedule an appointment with one of our academic advisors according to your specific major.

To be accepted into the School of Business, you must have completed MATH 1302 (College Algebra) and RHET 1312 (Composition II), with a grade of C or greater, and have a minimum of 2.25 overall GPA (at UA Little Rock or transferring school).

Credit for an upper-level business course is not granted if students complete such courses before accumulating 54 semester credit hours. Credit is not granted toward a degree for any business course taken without the prerequisites stated in the UA Little Rock academic catalog. Students may be administratively withdrawn from courses for which they are enrolled without the prerequisites.

Transfer of Credits

In general, credits earned with a grade of C or greater at other appropriately accredited institutions may be transferred for credit toward majors and minors offered by the School of Business, unless otherwise noted within departmental sections. Credits for upper‐level business courses completed at schools not accredited by AACSB International are withheld pending review and validation by the department offering the course(s). Credits earned at community colleges in business courses offered by UA Little Rock at the upper‐level are not transferable toward a business degree.

Students must complete at UA Little Rock at least 50% of the major department degree requirements and at least 50% of all School of Business courses required for a business degree. Transfer students should report to the appropriate department chairperson prior to their first registration.
