CBA Academic Advising

The College of Business Administration (CBA) advising staff can help you make informed decisions that will assist you in achieving your personal, educational, and career goals. Advisers will support you through your journey by helping you with:

Admission into the CBA

Pre-business majors and transfer students must meet specific requirements for admission into the CBA. Please review the admission requirements page for the full list of requirements.

Freshman students that have an ACT score of 21 and a high school GPA of 3.0 are admissible to the CBA within their first semester at The University of Akron. Students may complete an inter-college transfer form with their assigned adviser anytime within their first semester.

Honors College students may complete an inter-college transfer form with their assigned adviser during any semester for admission into the CBA.
