College of Business Freshman Admission Policy 

Students are admitted to the College of Business on either a degree-seeking or non-degree-seeking basis. High school visitors, visiting students from other institutions, auditors, post-baccalaureate students, and students admitted as special students are considered non-degree seeking. They will be notified by the Office of Admissions of their status and of the conditions of their enrollment at the time they are accepted. All other students are considered degree-seeking.

Students planning to earn degrees from the College of Business must be degree-seeking in order for the credits they have earned to apply toward their degrees. Students remain in a degree-seeking status until they graduate, transfer to another college or university, or are suspended/dismissed.

Freshman admission to the College of Business is granted to those meeting the following requirements:

Either

  1. An ACT composite score of 25 or above (SAT 1130 or above), a high school GPA of 3.0 or above, and an ACT Mathematics score of 23 or above (SAT 570 or above)
    or
  2. An ACT composite score of  22, 23 or 24 (SAT 1020-1120), a high school GPA of 3.3 or above, and an ACT Mathematics score of 23 or above (SAT 570 or above)

Transfer Students:

Students who seek admission to the College with credit for work taken at another institution, or in another college or school in the University of Louisville, are transfer students. Such applicants may be admitted in good standing, in conditional status, or denied admission. Apply for Transfer


Internal Transfers:

Admission in Good Standing

  • Students with less than 15 transferable hours are considered in a similar fashion to freshman students and must meet the admission requirements for new freshmen and have a minimum college GPA of 2.8
  • Students with 15, or more, transferable credit hours must have both:
    • Earned a 2.8 cumulative GPA.  Note that students with an established UofL GPA (hours attempted with a grade), may not include grades for coursework at another institution in consideration for admission.
    • And, completed the following courses with a letter grade of B- or better
      • Math 111 College Algebra (or equivalent)
      • ACCT 201 (or equivalent)
      • Either ECON 201 or 202 (or equivalent)

Admission in Conditional Status

Students who have a 2.8 university GPA, 15 or more credit hours completed, and a B- or better in two of the three courses listed above, can petition for admission on an exception basis.  Students admitted under this petition process will be admitted in conditional status. Students admitted in conditional standing must be advised, and are restricted to 13 credit hours per semester. Students admitted in conditional standing must earn a 2.0 cumulative GPA or a 2.5 semester GPA following admission to avoid suspension as consistent with the COB policy on Academic Status. Students in conditional standing will become students in good standing when their University GPA is 2.0 or above after the next semester completed.


External Transfers:

Admission in good standing requires:

  • A grade point average of 2.8 or better on a 4.0 scale based on all work attempted for college credit. (If previously enrolled at UofL, GPA will be calculated only on UofL work attempted for college credit.) (See “Transfer Students” in the General Information section of this catalog);
  • Good standing in the institution of last attendance, including eligibility to return to that institution;
  • Full disclosure of previous attendance in another school or college of this University and/or any other post-secondary institution.

Transfer applicants to the College of Business with less than 24 transferable credits from another accredited institution will be required to submit college transcripts, a final high school transcript, and ACT or SAT scores. In addition to meeting the 2.8 transfer college GPA, they must meet all new freshmen requirements for COB applicants with the following exception. Students meeting the high school GPA and composite ACT or SAT requirements, but not meeting the math score requirement can be admitted if they have successfully completed a college math class at the college algebra level or higher.
