Admission to The College of Business Administration

We are glad you are interested in being admitted into the College of Business Administration. You can learn more about us in our CBA Undergraduate Viewbook.

Applying to UA

High school students

Students who are admitted to The University of Akron and indicate a Business major or Undecided Business concentration on the application will be admitted to the College of Business Administration.

Students wishing to be in the Williams Honors College must apply separately to the college. There are many benefits to doing so.

Transfer students

Transfer students are students who have attended or are attending a college or university after graduating from high school. The Transfer and Adult Student Enrollment Center assists students in their Transfer Credit Evaluation. If a course has not been previously reviewed, students need to submit a course syllabus to the Transfer and Adult Student Enrollment Center.

Please contact the Transfer and Adult Student Enrollment Center for additional information.

Adult students

Adult students are students who have graduated from high school or earned a G.E.D. more than five years ago, and never attended college.

Please contact the Transfer and Adult Student Enrollment Center for additional admissions information. Adult Focus provides preadmission advising and academic support services for adult and veteran students.

Post-bac students

Post-bac students have received a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited college or university other than The University of Akron and plan to take undergraduate coursework. For the College of Business Administration, we recommend that students first meet with CBA Graduate Programs to determine if a graduate degree would be a better alternative. Often, completing a Master’s in Business Administration may take less time than completing a Bachelor’s degree in Business.

Current UA students

If you are a current UA student who wants to pursue one of the CBA majors, please visit your current academic advisor to begin the process to change your academic major. It is also recommended that students schedule an appointment to meet with a CBA academic advisor.
