Admission Information

Join a nationally ranked business program and start building your future success.

Ohio University’s College of Business is a selective program. We are proud of the quality of our students and welcome other excellent students with an interest in business to apply.

Freshman Enrollment Policy

Freshmen will be admitted to the College on a selective basis. Successful candidates are generally in the top 20 percent of their high school classes, with a strong college preparatory curriculum. They are expected to have above-average ACT or SAT scores and also have demonstrated leadership potential through participation in extracurricular activities or work experience. Members of groups that are historically underrepresented in business will receive special consideration.

Students indicating an interest in the BBA degree who do not meet the requirements for direct admission (as described above) will be admitted to the University College as “Undecided Business” and will be admitted to the College of Business and the BBA program only after completing the requirements for transfer described in the “Transfer” section.

Students indicating an interest in the Sport Management major, which leads to a BSM degree, who do not meet the requirements for direct admission that are described above will be admitted to University College  as a “Pre-Sport Management Major” and will be admitted to the Sport Management major and the College of Business only after having completed the requirements for transfer described in the “Transfer” section.
