Albers School of Business and Economics

Admissions

All undergraduates must apply to the Seattle University Admissions Office for entrance. Through the Admissions Office you can request information, learn how to apply to the university, arrange for a campus visit, become familiar with the undergraduate degree programs, and get information on financing your education.

Current Seattle University students interested in transferring into the Albers School, please complete ALL the following bullet points before you submit your Change of Major form to us:

  • Have completed Calculus (MATH 1130 or 1334) and at least one of these courses (ACCT 2300, ACCT 2310, ECON 2100, ECON 2110, or ECON 2130) before applying to transfer into Albers.  Exceptions to this rule are only made for freshmen with high cum GPA.
  • Have a Seattle University cumulative GPA of at least 2.75. If this cumulative GPA is low due to former major courses, e.g. Nursing or Science & Engineering courses, we may re-calculate your cumulative GPA taking these courses off. However, we will not take off the CORE courses.
  • Have a Business major GPA of at least 2.75. Courses included in the Business major GPA calculations are MATH 1130/1334, ACCT 2300, ACCT 2310, ECON 2100, ECON 2110, ECON 2130, BCOM 2800 and all 3000- and 4000-level business classes. The first six courses in this list are open to all Seattle University students. BCOM 2800 and 3000/4000 level courses are only open to those who have already declared a major (or minor) or on a space availability basis.

Our advising team will be happy to meet with you to discuss more about the new majors. You can call our Front Desk (206-296-5700) to schedule an appointment with the adviser for your major of interest. You are also welcome to email Dr. Teresa Ling at tling@seattleu.edu to set up an appointment with her.

Once Dr. Ling approves the Change of Major into Albers with her signature on the form, she will have our advisors contact you to pick up and bring the form to your former advisor for his or her signature. You should then bring the completed form back to PIGT 318 for us to log and forward to the Registrar Office.
