Sophomore Transfers for Business Majors & Minors

Sophomore transfer students are defined as anyone transferring to UNC Chapel Hill in either their second, third or fourth term in residence (have 5 or more semesters to complete their degree requirements at UNC).

Sophomore transfers:

  • Must complete all business school prerequisites before they are eligible to start in the Undergraduate Business Program.  While students may be completing their prerequisites in the term during which they are applying, admission priority is given to students with fewer prerequisites remaining at the time of application.
  • Should submit a Transfer Equivalency Credit Review form for business courses as soon as you accept your offer to join UNC (you will be prompted to submit a course syllabi with this form). While most transfer equivalencies will be determined through Undergraduate Admissions, the business school makes all decisions on business class transfers.  You should allow up to three weeks for a decision. 
  • Should know that admission to the Business School is extremely competitive.  We admit 50% of our applicants each year.  Please review our eligibility requirements and our class profile. Students who are currently enrolled in business programs at other four year institutions should think carefully about their decision to leave these programs.
  • Should strongly consider attending UNC Summer School to catch up on completing business school prerequisites.  While not required, more than 75% of UNC students participate in summer school at some point throughout their four years.  UNC Summer School provides transfer students with an excellent opportunity to acclimatize to life in Chapel Hill, as well as the UNC academic environment by taking one or two courses before taking a full course load during the fall semester.
  • Must apply to the business school by the October 1st deadline (application opens on July 1st). We will not consider sophomore transfers for the September 1st spring application deadline as we need to see fall performance as part of our admissions evaluation.
