Students desiring to major in business enter the program under their intended major but are considered “pre-business” until a successful application for admission to the Jones College of Business is made. Application and admission are required before students begin to take 3000 and 4000 level business courses outside of the business core.
To apply, the following requirements must be met:

• Minimum of 30 semester hours of degree credits (excluding Academic Enrichment and High School Deficiencies)
• Completion of all learning support courses, if required
• Cumulative GPA of 2.25 on all college-level coursework
• A 2.25* GPA average among these four designated pre-business courses:
Accounting Principles I: ACTG 2110 or ACCT 1010
Statistical Methods I: QM 2610 or MATH 1530
Introduction to Macroeconomics: ECON 2410 or ECON 2010
Introduction to Microeconomics: ECON 2420 or ECON 2020
*Note: Students enrolled in courses at MTSU for the first time from fall 2007 to summer 2012 must have a minimum of a 2.00 GPA in the four pre-business courses. If the first semester at MTSU was prior to fall 2007, students are exempt from the policy.
