Cross-Campus Transfer for Current U-M Students:

While attending the University of Michigan, you may apply to the Ross BBA during your freshman or sophomore year. The Cross-Campus Transfer application process is available to students who find an interest in business while at U-M. While the main pathway to enter the BBA program is Preferred Admission, Transfer Admission is available for dual degree students and U-M freshman who have not previously considered business, in addition to external transfer students. We will enroll approximately 100 students through Cross-Campus Transfer Admission. 


Dates & Deadlines

Apply Now

The BBA Cross-Campus Transfer application will be available at the end of December. Once available, you can save your work, and return to it as often as you would like. You may submit your application as early as Feb 15.

Application Deadline: 11:59 p.m. EDT March 31

There are no exceptions to the deadline. We strongly recommend you submit the application several days before the deadline to avoid last-minute problems. You will receive a confirmation email when we receive your application.

The application must be submitted electronically. Make sure you have uploaded the correct essays, and be sure to submit only your completed application. Once you submit your application, you may not alter or add to it in any way.

Notification Date:  late June

We will communicate your admission decision online by late June. If admitted, you will then have one week to accept your offer of admission. Be sure to check your email (including spam filters and inboxes) throughout the month of June.


BBA Orientation

All entering students must attend the mandatory BBA Orientation program, which will take place the Thursday or Friday before fall classes begin. You will receive more information about Orientation after you accept admission.


Criteria

When reviewing your application, we consider the following:

We look for good grades in challenging classes.

Keep mandatory credit/no credit courses to a minimum. In the case of optional pass/fail courses, we have access to the actual letter grade you earned and will consider that.

We suggest a minimum of two rigorous quantitative courses. These may include the required courses in Calculus and Economics.

Quality extracurricular experience.

Deep engagement: Put your unique passions into practice. We value all kinds of activities, not just those related to business.

Initiative: Look for ways to take initiative or assume responsibility, whether or not you have a formal leadership position.

Commitment over time: We look for quality of involvement, not just quantity of activities. We consider and give priority to activities you’ve participated in while at U-M (both within the U-M community or elsewhere, such as a part-time job). Meaningful high school experiences may be used to supplement U-M involvement, particularly for freshman applicants. We expect greater involvement for applicants beyond freshman standing.

Compelling application essays: Think about what makes the Ross BBA right for you, given your interests, goals, and experiences.

Provide specific examples: They should highlight your best, most unique qualities.

Be age-appropriate: It’s OK if you don't have your adult career mapped out yet.
