Requirements for Full Admission to the Jones College of Business (Effective Fall 2007)
MTSU and transfer grades are used to calculate both required GPAs. The Jones College follows the MTSU repeat policy.
After completing admission requirements, students must complete the Application to Major in Jones College of Business, available online or at the advising office in Business and Aerospace Building (BAS) N233. Once granted admission, students who are juniors and meet prerequisites may register for upper-division (3000-4000) level courses in the major. Students must be admitted at least one semester prior to their anticipated graduation date.
Before students are fully admitted, they may register for general education and business core courses. Students must meet prerequisites for all courses. Registration in the business core does not guarantee admission into the Jones College.
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 pre-business courses. Students enrolled in courses at MTSU prior to Fall 2007 are exempt from this policy.
