- Earn a cumulative GPA of 3.300 or higher by the end of Winter 2013 term.
- GPAs are not rounded up from 3.299.
- Preferred Admit students are expected to take classes on a graded basis (unless the class has a mandatory Credit/No Credit basis); if you elect courses on the optional pass/fail basis, we will recalculate your GPA to reflect the actual letter grades you earned.
- Earn at least 27 credits at U-M, each with a grade of C or better, during Fall 2012 and Winter 2013 terms combined.
- AP, IB, A-level, and transfer credits do not count toward the 27 required credits.
- Courses in the Officer Education Program do not count toward the 27 required credits unless they are cross-listed in another U-M department.
- Courses in the School of Kinesiology do not count toward the 27 required credits unless listed as an exception in item 3 under "Non-LSA Course Work" on LSA's Newnan Academic Advising Center website.
- Students who receive only 2 credits in Math 105 after taking Math 103 are considered to have earned 4 credits in Math 105 for the sake of meeting our admission requirements.
- Complete the following course requirements at U-M, each with a grade of C or better, by the end of Winter 2013:
First-Year Writing Requirement (FYWR) as approved through the LSA Sweetland Writing Center
- ENGR 100 does NOT fulfill the FYWR
any course in Calculus I, II, or III
- AP credit for Calculus I or II (Math 120 or 121) will substitute.

ECON 101 - Principles of Economics I
- IB or A-level credit for ECON 101 will substitute.

- Calculus Requirement: AP/IB/A-Level credit will substitute for the required course in Calculus.
- Microeconomics requirement: IB or A-Level credit will substitute for Microeconomics, but AP credit will not.
General registration will open in early April for undergraduates, but the University catalog and schedule of classes for Fall 2013 will be available starting March 1. Be sure to review the schedule and the information below before registration opens.
- ACC 300 (3.0 credits): if not already completed. Register for the SAME section # as your MO 300 section election.
- MO 300 (3.0 credits): Register for the SAME section # as your ACC 300 section election.
- TO 200 (1.5 credits): Register for any of the open sections.
- ECON 102: if not already completed. (ECON 102 must be completed at UM-Ann Arbor in Fall or Winter of the Sophomore BBA2 year if not completed prior to the first day of Fall term.)
- ES 250: Introduction to Entrepreneurship
- BE 301: Advanced Applied Microeconomics (requires B+ or better in Econ 401 prior to Fall 2013)
You will register for your Fall 2013 course on Wolverine Access using the University’s general registration process. It is YOUR responsibility to make sure you are completing the appropriate requirements to be eligible for the BBA program and are registering for the Fall BBA core (see above).
Q. Do I need to use the backpack feature on Wolverine Access before registration opens?
A. It is recommended that you do, but it is not required. Starting March 27, you can start to add classes to your "Backpack" in Wolverine Access. Backpacking courses allows you to quickly add those classes all at once when your registration appointment time opens. However, be aware that backpacking does not reserve a seat for you in the class - it is simply a way to put the course in your "shopping cart" so that you can "check-out" quickly. If a class in your backpack does not have room available when your registration time opens, you may have to waitlist yourself, and/or select an alternate open class at that time.
Q. When is my registration appointment time?
A. The University assigns registration appointment times for undergraduate students starting April 8. The times are determined by the credits completed, and then are randomly assigned. You can view your assigned time on Wolverine Access starting March 27.
Q. Do I have to register exactly at my appointment time, and when does my registration close?
A. You do not need to register exactly at your appointment time, but some classes will fill quickly, or seats may be opened to non-Ross students after registration has been open for a week or more, so it is to your advantage to register when your appointment time opens. Once your appointment time opens, you can continue to make changes until the drop/add deadlines for Fall 2013.
- UM - Ann Arbor coursework: Incoming BBA students can take courses at UM - Ann Arbor during the Spring and Summer terms; simply register for them on Wolverine Access during the general registration period in April.
- Non-UM coursework: Incoming BBA students can also take credits outside of UM - Ann Arbor, but need to be aware of the specific rules/policies for transfer credits.
- Transfer credit evaluation: Ross generally follows LSA guidelines for which courses/schools will transfer to U-M, with the exception that they cannot be Business courses. (ECON 102, while required for our curriculum, is an LSA course, so this is fine to take outside of UM - Ann Arbor as long as it is completed prior to the start of Fall 2013.) You should review the central campus course equivalency database BEFORE REGISTERING to ensure that the courses you are considering taking outside of U-M are accepted by U-M, and will transfer as an exact U-M ECON 102 equivalent (not 102X or Departmental Credit).
- Office of Undergraduate Admissions Course Equivalency website: http://www.ugadmiss.umich.edu/TCE/Public/CT_TCESearch.aspx - simply filter this to the state/school you are considering and then the course(s) that you are planning to take.
- 60 credit community college rule: Students who have completed 60 credits, or will exceed 60 credits with the transferred credits cannot earn additional credits from two-year schools or colleges (e.g., community colleges). For example, if your total credits will be 58 at the end of the Winter 2013 semester, you cannot take a 3.0 credit class at a community college, since 58 + 3 > 60.
Q. I still have questions. Is there someone I can talk to?
A. Ross Preferred Admit students are welcome to consult with a Ross Academic Advisor during Academic Advising Walk-in hours, Monday-Friday from 1-3 p.m. in E2420.
