13 Regulations for the General Degree of Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA)
13.1 Admission Modes and Requirements
13.1.1 Direct Entry (for High School Students)

Students may apply for admission into first year of the BBA program (Terms A/B) directly from high school by indicating this in the appropriate place on their Undergraduate Application for Admission/Readmission to Memorial University of Newfoundland. Direct entry from high school is subject to the applicant's final acceptance to the University and admissibility into either Mathematics 1000 or 1090. Terms A/B normally starts in September.

13.1.2 Advanced Standing (for Current Memorial University of Newfoundland Students)
  1. Students may apply for admission with Advanced Standing into the BBA program beyond Terms A/B. Students applying for admission beyond Terms A/B must have completed all of the courses required in Terms A/B with grades high enough to have met continuation requirements. Students applying for admission with advanced standing must complete and submit to the Office of the Registrar the Application For Admission to the Faculty of Business Administration, normally on or before the deadlines specified in the University Diary for the semester in which they intend to begin their program.

  2. Admission with Advanced Standing is competitive and selective. Prospective students are therefore encouraged to consider an alternate degree program in the event that they are not accepted into the BBA program.

  3. The primary criterion used in reaching decisions on applications for admission with advanced standing is overall academic achievement. Selection, therefore, will be based on a student's overall academic performance. Students with weak overall academic records are unlikely to be admitted.

  4. In the case where an applicant has been required to withdraw from the Bachelor of Commerce (Co-operative) Program, the Admissions Committee of the Faculty may consider this circumstance as grounds to deny admission.

13.1.3 Transfers From Other Post-Secondary Institutions
  1. Students who are transferring from other universities must apply for admission to the University on or before the deadlines specified in the University Diary for the semester in which they intend to begin their program, to allow sufficient time for the evaluation of transfer credits. The acceptance of transfer students into the BBA program is subject to the same conditions outlined under Advanced Standing (for Current Memorial University of Newfoundland Students) above.

  2. Subject to items 2. and 3. under Advanced Standing (for Current Memorial University of Newfoundland Students) above, graduates of a three year community college business diploma program may also be considered for admission with advanced standing into the BBA program. To be eligible for the General Degree of Bachelor of Business Administration such students will be required to complete a minimum of 45 credit hours beyond those used towards their college diploma. Specific course requirements will be determined on an individual basis at the time of admission.
