Choosing the correct major is an important decision and will play a critical role in your success here at Georgia Tech and when you enter the job market. Our change of major process is designed to verify student eligibility and help students successfully transition into the Scheller College of Business. Please read through this entire page for important information and instructions.
Eligibility to Change Major to Business Administration
First-year students must wait until after the withdrawal deadline date in their first semester to change their major.
There is no GPA requirement for students with fewer than 60 credits.
Students with 60 or more credits need to have at least a 2.3 cumulative GPA to change their major to Business Administration.
The Scheller College of Business does not accept students who are currently on academic contracts with another department at Georgia Tech. Departmental contracts must be successfully completed prior to being eligible to change major to Business Administration.
How To Change Your Major to Business Administration (Or Add As a Secondary Major)
Students who are interested in changing their major will complete a Canvas course that gives a broad overview of our advising and career services, the BSBA curriculum, and the opportunities they will have as a Scheller student. Upon completion of the Canvas course, the student’s record will be evaluated to confirm they are eligible to change their major. Once confirmed, the student will be contacted to schedule an appointment with an academic advisor where they can ask questions and get their form signed.
Courses that are good for students who plan on changing their major: MGT 2106, ACCT 2101, ECON 2106, ECON 2105, MGT 2250, and MGT 2210.
Change of Major Policies and Expectations
- Complete the steps outlined in the canvas course. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Marcus Reese.
The purpose of this process is to orient you to our major requirements, academic advising, internship and leadership expectations, as well as the resources in the Scheller College of Business.
- Completion of the Canvas course does not guarantee a major change.
You are not obligated to change your major once you complete the process.
Students are not able to meet with Scheller College of Business advisors until they have completed the Change of Major Canvas course and have been permitted by Marcus Reese, Academic Assistant.
