PROPOSED CHANGES TO THE ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS IN THE RED MCCOMBS SCHOOL OF BUSINESS CHAPTER OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2000-2002

 

In Chapter 3, on page 42, in the section ADMISSION AND REGISTRATION, under the heading REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION TO THE RED MCCOMBS SCHOOL OF BUSINESS, make the following changes:

STUDENTS IN OTHER DIVISIONS OF THE UNIVERSITY

Students enrolled in other degree programs at the University who wish to enter a degree program described in this chapter must submit an application for a change of major to the Undergraduate [Dean's] Programs Office by June 1 to be considered for admission in the following fall semester. The minimum requirements for admission are

1. Completion of twenty-four semester hours of coursework in residence on the letter-grade basis by the end of the preceding spring semester.
2. Completion of Mathematics [403K] 408K or 408C or the equivalent.
3. Completion of at least one of the following courses: Mathematics [403L,] 408L or 408D, Economics 304K, 304L.
4. Students who have earned sixty hours or more of college credit must have completed the following courses: Mathematics 408K or 408C, 408L or 408D, Economics 304K, 304L.
[4.]5. Completion of the foreign language proficiency requirement of two years of a single foreign language in high school or one year of a single foreign language in college.

Admission is granted on a space-available basis and may not be possible if instructional resources are not compatible with enrollment demands. A student with a grade point average of less than [3.00] 3.30 is unlikely to be admitted to the school.

Rationale: The change in mathematics reflects the proposed change for all business students to requirement 4c on page 45. Mathematics and economics are prerequisite courses for core business courses which, in turn, are prerequisites for other business courses. Students who enter the Red McCombs School of Business with sixty or more hours are delayed in their progress toward the degree if they do not have these courses completed prior to admission.

The change in the gpa more accurately reflects the true cutoff for admission to the Red McCombs School of Business.
