How To Change Your Major to BSBA or Add BSBA as a Secondary Major

The Scheller College of Business is a top business school that is nationally recognized for preparing students for the economy of the future. Since we are a business college at an engineering school, our services, processes and curriculum may be quite different than what you have experienced at Tech. In order for you to be fully prepared to enter the Scheller College of Business, all students are required to complete the following steps.

  1. The Powerpoint presentation will download and play. Please make sure you have your speakers on.

  2. Complete the Scheller BSBA Check for Understanding. This is password protected and you must complete the module to access the password.

  3. Read the email sent to you by one of our advisors sent after you complete the "Scheller BSBA Check for Understanding". This will contain further instructions and links. Typically, you can expect this within 5 - 7 business days after completing the "Scheller BSBA Check for Understanding" but it may be longer during busier periods of the year (Registration, Final Exams, FASETs etc...).

  4. Register for and attend the mandatory the Business Adminstration Preparation meeting. The link to register for the meeting will also be in the email. Please note that we need 5 - 7 days to prepare for your attendance at a BSBA Meetings. Students, therefore, need to complete the Change of Major module and Check For Understanding at least five days prior to the meeting they plan to attend.
