File a Degree Plan in Business

Students may use the form at the bottom of this page to declare or change a major in Business. This form is not to be used if you are trying to declare Pre-business. Please go to this site in order to declare Pre-business.

 

Overview

We are happy that you are progressing towards a degree in Business! Keep in mind that current Pre-business students must meet minimum requirements. Please see the checklist before filling out the application form to make sure you qualify. If all looks good, please fill out the form. You will be notified by email.

 

Checklist to Qualify

  • You must be a PREBUSINESS major
  • You must have a minimum 2.5 UH GPA
  • Clear the Business Writing Evaluation (BWE)
  • Pass the Excel Competency Exam (or completion of MIS 3300 with a grade of "C" or higher)
  • You must have credit for the courses listed below under the catalog year degree plan you request and for which you are eligible.
  • When filling out the Request Form, students should select either the "Fall 2018 Degree Plan" or the "Fall 2019 Degree Plan." For questions on which to select, consult your academic advisor.

 

"Fall 2018" or "Fall 2019"?

Explanation of Catalog Year Degree Plans

Students who enrolled at UH prior to Fall 2019 are under the "Fall 2018" degree plan but may request to move forward to the "Fall 2019" degree plan.

Students entering UH in Fall 2019 or later are under the "Fall 2019" degree plan.

Students may not mix and match requirements. For example, a student under the "Fall 2018" degree plan must take STAT 3331 without substitution. A student under the "Fall 2019" degree plan may not substitute a speech course for MARK 3337. The chart below outlines the significant differences in the two degree plans (see the links to the Fall 2018 and Fall 2019 degree plans for a complete list of all B.B.A. degree requirements). For questions on which plan is appropriate for you, consult your academic advisor.

Significant Differences in the "Fall 2018" degree plan versus the "Fall 2019" degree plan:

MARK 3337, or COMM 3356, or transfer credit for SPCH 1315 (transfers as COMM 1332) or SPCH 1321 (transfers as COMM 1FOS).
