College of Business

Declaring Business Major

How do I declare my business major?

Declaration of a Business major is a two-step process that begins by applying to the College of Business.  Upon admission to the COB, you'll be notified at your UHD Gator Account with instructions to proceed to the Advising Office.  It is strongly recommended that students apply for a major upon eligibility, to determine applicability of transfer credits and to meet with a College of Business Advisor.

What are the requirements for Admission to the College of Business?

Consistent with the University of Houston-Downtown’s commitment to quality undergraduate education, the College of Business adopts this policy regarding admissions, the declaration of majors, course enrollment and requirements for graduation for BBA degree programs. Effective January 19, 2010, current students and new transfer students must have of 2.50 or higher to declare their major in the College of Business.


  1. Students currently enrolled at UHD with a GPA of 2.50 or higher on all work at UHD may apply for admission to the College of Business and simultaneously declare a major in business if the following requirements are met:
    • completion of 42 hours of the common core requirements,
    • completion of College Algebra with a “C” or higher,
    • satisfactory completion of TSI requirements, and
    • no transcript or cashier holds.
  2. Joint-Admission community college/UHD students with a GPA of 2.50 or higher at the college/university most recently attended may apply for admission to the College of Business and simultaneously declare a major in business if the following requirements are met:
    • completion of the 42 hours of common core requirements,
    • completion of College Algebra with a “C” or higher,
    • satisfactory completion of TSI requirements, and
    • no transcript or cashier holds.
  3. New transfer students with a GPA of 2.50 or higher at the college/university most recently attended may apply for admission to the College of Business and simultaneously declare a major in business if the following requirements are met:
