Admission

Admission into the BBA program is a two step process. Students are first admitted to UM-Dearborn as pre-business majors. Then, students can apply to the BBA program after fulfilling the BBA admission requirements.

You are considered a freshman applicant if you have graduated from secondary school (high school) or have passed the General Education Development exam (GED), and have not attended a college or university since then.

Freshmen applicants should follow the freshman admission process.
