Notes

* This major is under administrative enrollment controls. Students must complete required courses by the end of the entrance-to-major pool semester and must confirm their major choices by the published deadline for the ETM process. To be considered for an enrollment-controlled major, students must be in the Smeal College of Business or DUS at the time they confirm their major selection. Students must have the stated CGPA at the end of the semester preceding the pool semester to be guaranteed entrance to this major. However, "If there is still space after all of the students who meet these criteria have been accepted, selections are made from the remaining students in the pool of applicants, starting with the highest GPA, until the approved maximum number of students to enter the major is reached. No student with less than a 2.00 cumulative GPA is accepted" (Undergraduate Advising Handbook). The final entrance to major cutoff GPA must be maintained through spring of sophomore year.

† Students must attain the required CGPA for the option by the end of the fall semester preceding the pool semester and maintain that CGPA through to the end of the spring pool semester.
