Please take time to review the undergraduate business program's policies on things such as waitlist, prerequisites and course transfers.
The Undergraduate Business Administration Educational Affairs Committee establishes the prerequisites for all courses offered by the department. Individual instructors are not able to waive these prerequisites.
In a few cases, students may meet prerequisites through alternative coursework. Any student who thinks they have met the prerequisites for a course in an alternative manner should see a department advisor for evaluation of their course audit. The department will not waive prerequisite requirements for any reason other than completed course work.
To see a list of course prerequisites listed by department, please visit the Carnegie Mellon Hub under Course Information On-Line.

Please complete the course substitution and transfer credit form (.pdf) and bring it to the Undergraduate Business Administration office. You must fill out a form prior to taking a course at another university. You will be notified if the request has been accepted, and the department will update your audit to reflect this change.

Undergraduate business administration courses are highly sought after by students in many majors outside of the business school. This interdisciplinary spirit is embedded in our culture. We welcome the variety of talented students who enrich our courses with their unique perspectives and interests.
However, the demand for access to courses in undergraduate business makes it necessary to have policies that favor undergraduate business majors in their progress toward a degree.
These policies create more opportunities for all students. In the past year, 17 students completed requirements for a double major and over 125 students minored in business administration.
