Freshman admission is competitive.  Students who apply for and are accepted into the Belk College of Business are initially classified as Pre-Accounting (PACC), Pre-Business (PBUS), or Pre-Economics (PECO) majors.  Transfer students from other institutions must present a GPA of at least 2.5, as calculated by the UNC Charlotte Office of Undergraduate Admissions, to be admitted into a PACC, PBUS, or PECO major.  Students then work with the Belk College of Business to apply for an upper-division Accounting, Business, or Economics major.

Students who complete the Progression Requirements listed below may declare an upper-division major in Accounting 

Admission Requirements

Pre-Accounting students seeking admission to the upper-division major must have met the following criteria:

  1. Attained Junior standing (60 credit hours or more)
  2. Earned a minimum overall GPA of at least 2.5 for all academic work
  3. Completed ACCT 2121  with a grade of B or above and the remaining Progression Courses listed below with a minimum grade of C
  4. Earned a minimum GPA of at least 2.5 for these Progression Courses
  5. Completed an approved Change of Major Form with an Academic Advisor in the Belk College of Business Advising Center

Students who fail to declare their major on time will be prohibited from changing their major at a later date if their cumulative GPA falls below a 2.5.  They will no longer meet the 2.5 GPA requirement to declare a major.

Progression Courses

Students may attempt each of the Progression Courses listed below a maximum of two times.  An attempt is defined as a course that is completed with a final grade of A, B, C, D, or F.  Courses repeated under the Grade Replacement Policy are excluded from the GPA computation, but will count as an attempt. Students who do not meet the Progression Requirements are ineligible for continuation in the Belk College of Business.
