Eligibility to Declare Pre-Business

To be eligible to declare the Pre-Business major you must satisfy all of the following requirements:

  • Have a C- or better in all Business Degree Program Coursework, which includes all Pre-Business core, Pro-School core, and Major Specific Courses that are required to earn a specific business degree (both transfer and OSU grades).
  • Have an AIB GPA of 2.5 or higher. The All-Inclusive Business (AIB) GPA is the average of grades earned in the Business Degree Program Coursework (both transfer and OSU grades), and grades of any additional business courses taken at OSU.
  • Have a COB GPA of 2.5 or higher. If a student has completed three or more courses in the Business Degree Program Coursework at OSU, then the COB GPA (which includes OSU grades only) will be used to determine eligibility. If a class has been repeated, then refer to the Retaking Courses policy to see which grade is used to compute the AIB GPA.
  • Must be in good standing at OSU with a 2.0 cumulative OSU GPA and a 2.0 GPA from the most recent term at OSU (OSU Grades only)
