Important Notes

Students have a maximum of two attempts at application to the Professional Program.

This includes instances of students not being admitted, loss of admission due to not completing all eligibility requirements, declining admission prior to starting the cohort, or dropping all classes during the first semester of the cohort. The process does not allow for deferment of admission. Students studying abroad the semester before starting the Professional Program will submit their application in absentia.

Students are conditionally admitted to both the College and the individual major.

The Eller College is committed to admitting a talented class to our cohort every semester. As such, admission to the college is based on both demands for the college and individual majors. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the Business Administration Evening Cohort, students participating in the Business Administration major will not be permitted to apply to change their major once starting the program. Students are encouraged to research their major choice carefully before submitting their completed application.

Students are conditionally admitted to the college based on five areas:

  • All remaining foundation courses must be successfully completed with a passing (or transferable) grade at the end of the semester in which they are applying.
    • Students who fail to complete their remaining foundation courses during the semester in which they apply will be removed from all or part of the Business Administration cohort.
  • A total of 54 units must be completed at the end of the semester in which they are applying.
  • Applicants must be in good academic standing in order to begin the Professional Program. Students who have a cumulative UA grade point average below 2.0 will be revoked.
  • Students must pass the Skills Assessment Exam with a score of 75% or higher. Admitted students who score below this score will be required to re-take another assessment test. Students will be permitted to re-take the assessment test two times. If a satisfactory score is not earned after the second re-take attempt, then the original admission will be revoked and the applicant must re-apply for Professional Admission.
  • Students must demonstrate professional competencies in the areas of a Resume, Letter of Intent, and Interview. Admitted students who score below a level determined to be satisfactory will be required to attend Professional Competency Workshops and complete any supporting assignments. Students who do not meet the competency requirements will be revoked and the applicant must re-apply for Professional Admission.
