Presentation - Application Information

Students apply during the spring semester of their sophomore year (while enrolled in FINA 3001 and ACCO 3001) and notification of acceptance occurs in early March (before advising week). If at any time a student leaves or is dropped from the program, all credits earned at that point will be counted towards a finance major.

Acceptance into the program will be based on:

  • Grades earned through the end of the fall semester of sophomore year (GPA ≥ 3.0)
  • Resume
  • Two letters of recommendation
  • Application essay
  • Interview

Before beginning this application, please have the following items ready:
