Other Requirements

Catalog Year

Degree requirements for any particular major are subject to change and may occur as often as every two years. Declaring a business major secures students to the requirements specific to a catalog year. Consecutively enrolled students may remain on a degree plan for a period not to exceed seven years.

Transfer Students

Students should submit a change of major request after all courses are completed to fulfill degree plan requirements. If a student is transfering courses to meet requirements, the courses must be posted on MyUH.

BBA Mixed Program

Students may only enroll in 3000 level business courses without a degree plan on file or are in their 1st semester transition, known as a BBA Mixed Program. For students to progress within the BBA degree plan, they must complete CORE and Pre-business classes and achieve a minimum GPA of a 2.5 on at least 12 UH credit hours. We allow a transition phase, called a BBA Mixed Program, for students to complete these requirements while taking 3000 level business courses. In order to get into the BBA Mixed Program, students need to meet with a pre-business advisor. Or if requirements are met, students may file a degree plan to enroll in additional 3-4000 level business classes.
