Admission to the College

Students interested in a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in the College of Business must first apply to the University of Arkansas at Little Rock through the UALR Office of Admissions.

College of Business Admission Requirements

After admission to the University of Arkansas at Little Rock campus, students wanting to complete a Bachelor of Business Administration degree must apply for and be accepted into the College of Business. For any students interested in studying within the College of Business, schedule an appointment with one of our academic advisers according to the specific major.

To be accepted into any program in the College of Business, the student 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 UALR or transferring school). The GPA on the most recent 15 hours will be calculated on all hours attempted during the semester(s) in which the 15 hour requirement is met.

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 UALR catalog. Students may be administratively withdrawn from courses for which they are enrolled without the prerequisites.

We look forward to having you join us in one or more of our quality business programs!

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 College 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 UALR at the upper‐level are not transferable toward a business degree. Students must complete at UALR at least 50 percent of the major department degree requirements and at least 50 percent of all College of Business courses required for a business degree. Transfer students should report to the appropriate department chairperson prior to their first registration.
