Applying for Admission

All potential students seeking undergraduate admission to the University apply through the Office of Admission. Interested students may request admission directly to the Boler College of Business by so designating on the Common Application, or by denoting an intention to be admitted to Boler when registering for summer new student orientation.

Students enrolled in the College of Arts and Sciences who wish to apply to transfer to the Boler College must have an overall GPA of 2.0 or higher, and must complete AC 201, EC 201, and MT 130 with a minimum grade of C. If any of these courses are transferred into John Carroll from other institutions, then a minimum grade of C must be attained in at least 6 hours of course work in the Boler College of Business.

Interested students should complete the Declaration of Major through the Registrar’s website and submit it to their academic advisor. After reviewing credentials, the Boler College Dean’s Office will advise students whether they are (a) accepted, (b) conditionally accepted, or (c) rejected. Applications for transfer to Boler must be received by December 10 for consideration for spring enrollment, and by May 10 for consideration for fall enrollment. Please note that students not formally declared in Boler may not take more than 30 credit hours of Boler courses. Students should allow a minimum of six semesters (which could include a summer semester) to complete the requirements of the Boler core and major.
