Freshmen Direct Admission is a program designed to recognize high school students for their academic achievement and encourage them to excel in their academics and Pre-Business Foundation courses while at the University of Arizona.

Students were identified at the point of admission to The University of Arizona and are part of this program beginning their freshmen year. Students cannot join/qualify for this program at the point of application to the Eller College of Management.

Students qualify for this program by achieving a high school GPA of 3.8+ and  ACT score of 26+ or SAT of 1180+

Students retain their Freshmen Direct Admission status if they:

  • Maintain a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA at the time of application
  • Maintain a minimum 3.0 business foundation GPA at the time of application

Students who meet the above criteria will be guaranteed Professional admission to the Eller College.

More information will be shared at the point of admission to The University of Arizona and throughout the semesters leading up to the students application. There will be a required advising appointment (following submission of the online application through eSMS) where we will confirm your status.  Although admission to the Eller College is guaranteed for Freshmen Direct Admission applicants, each student is still expected to meet all stated deadlines and requirements throughout the Professional Admission process.

We encourage you to get involved and ELITE is a great way to do that!

Admission With Excellence

The Admission with Excellence initiative was designed to recognize the academic efforts of all high-achieving Eller Pre-Business students and support them in their Professional Development during their time at the University of Arizona as they prepare for future career opportunities.

Students qualify for Admission with Excellence if they:

  • Maintain a minimum 3.75 Cumulative GPA at the time of application, based on a minimum of 12 graded credits at The University of Arizona
  • Maintain a minimum 3.5 Foundation GPA at the time of application
  • International students must complete ENGL 101 and 102 or ENGL 109H at The University of Arizona in order to be eligible for Admission with Excellence

Students who meet the above criteria will be guaranteed:

  • Professional Admission to the Eller College
  • First choice of major and cohort
  • Exempt from Skills Assessment Exam
  • Professional Admission interview by someone in their field of interest

Due to the unique nature of the Global Cohort, these applicants will be asked to participate in the Global Cohort interviews.

Students who believe that they meet the requirements for Admission with Excellence should attend the AWE Professional Admission Orientation, submit the online application through eSMS, and then meet with an Academic Advisor.  The Professional Admission timeline and process will look slightly different for students who meet the qualifications for Honors Direct Admission.  More information will be shared at the required advising appointment (following submission of the online application through eSMS).  Although admission to the Eller College is guaranteed for Admission With Excellence applicants, each student is still expected to meet all stated deadlines and requirements throughout the Professional Admission process.
