Special Admission Requirements

Admission to the Farmer School of Business is limited, and the criteria for admission are subject to change as enrollment demands vary.

Freshman Admission

Admission to the Farmer School of Business

Admission to the Farmer School of Business generally takes place upon entry as a first year student. The academic credentials  required will vary during each admission cycle and are determined by the Office of Admission. The review process is holistic and comprehensive and considers many variables to establish the context of a student’s achievements and demonstrated potential to be successful in the rigorous curriculum. Additional details are available on the Farmer School website:  http://www.fsb.miamioh.edu/prospective-students/undergraduate/admission-requirements. 

First year students admitted to the University Honors program will be directly admitted to the Farmer School of Business.

Transfer Admission

A limited number of seats are available each semester for students who were not previously offered direct admission or who may be transferring from other institutions. Entry in any semester is restricted to the number of seats available and will be allocated according to the following processes:

Intra-university or a current Miami University student: To be admitted into the Farmer School of Business, a student must have earned at least 30 graded credit hours at Miami University that apply to a Bachelor of Science in Business degree and hold a GPA of 3.30 or higher in a set of Miami Plan Foundation and/or business courses taken at Miami University; this set must include MTH 151 and ECO 201 (or equivalent courses, unless AP or post-secondary credit was earned). For more information, please contact the Student Services Office at (513)529-1712.

Inter-university or external transfers from another college or university: To be admitted into the Farmer School of Business, a student must have earned at least 30 graded hours that apply toward the Bachelor of Science in Business degree. Typically, students must also have an overall GPA of 3.50 or higher in graded credit hours earned, which must include MTH 151 and ECO 201 (or equivalent courses, unless AP or post-secondary credit was earned). Questions can be directed to the FSB Student Services Office at (513)529-1712.

Relocating students: Students who initially enroll on Miami’s Hamilton or Middletown campuses may gain entry into the Farmer School of Business under the same processes described above for intra-university transfer.

The business technology programs on the regional campuses do not have these special admission policies.

Credit Hour Limitations

Students may accelerate their programs by registering in excess of the average 16 hours per semester needed to complete the program in eight semesters. Registrations of up to 20 hours are permitted in a regular semester or eight hours in a five- or six-week summer term. Course loads in excess of these limitations require permission from the Student Services office. Requests are normally only considered if the student earned a 3.50 grade point average for the preceding semester or is a senior who earned a 3.00 the previous semester.
