Additional Admission Requirements for the Bryan School of Business and Economics
Enrollment in Bryan School Courses
Students must have a minimum overall 2.0 GPA to enroll in Bryan School courses. Note: Effective July 1, 2011, the Department of Consumer, Apparel, and Retail Studies and the Sustainable Tourism and Hospitality major have joined the Bryan School of Business and Economics. The curricula of these two areas have not been reviewed to determine the impact of this change to the organizational structure; therefore, the curricula will be enforced as they were prior to the two areas joining the Bryan School until such a review can occur. This means that 1) Bryan School-wide course requirements and learning goals will not apply to students pursuing majors, concentrations, or minors, or taking courses in either of the two areas, and 2) Courses with the prefixes of APD, CRS, RCS, or STH will not be considered Bryan School prefixes in terms of requiring a minimum 2.0 for enrollment or fulfilling existing major and/or minor requirements.
Since most of the courses in the major are taken during the junior and senior years, transfer students often complete their programs without extending their total stay beyond the usual four years. As a general guide, courses taught mainly to freshmen and sophomores will usually, but not always, be accepted in transfer from accredited two-year colleges. Courses numbered 300 and above at UNCG generally will not be accepted in transfer credit from two-year institutions. In order to allow timely completion of the pre-admission courses, transfer students are encouraged to complete MAT 120 or 191 Calculus (MAT 263 or 271 at N.C. Community Colleges), prior to transferring. At least 50 percent of the business credit hours required for the degree must be earned at UNCG.
Consumer, Apparel, & Retail studies
Only grades of C (2.0) or higher in CARS courses (CRS, APD, RCS) will count toward completion of the major and concentrations. An apparel product construction exam must be passed to enroll in the Apparel Product Design Studio courses, beginning with APD 250.
