Requirements to be admitted to the Miller College of Business: Effective Fall 2016, enrolling students in the Miller College of Business are directly admitted into majors based on their application to Ball State University. It is recommended students meet with their designated advisor each semester to assist in planning a course schedule to stay on track towards degree completion. For those students interested in changing their designated major, this can be done by submitting a form to the Upper Division Advising Center in AC 224.


For students who enrolled in the Miller College of Business prior to Fall 2016 and who are declared as 'Pre-Business' majors on their DegreeWorks, you can learn more about declaring a business major here.
