Summer Orientation for New Students

Congratulations on your acceptance to Texas Christian University and beginning your journey into the Neeley School of Business. Welcome class of 2024.

The Neeley Academic Advising Center is dedicated to supporting students throughout their entire academic career and connecting students to campus resources. Our professional advisors assist students in developing an educational plan, reviewing academic progress and providing assistance with major and minor selection. 

Students are permitted and encouraged to complete the following prior to entering TCU:

  • TCU Core requirements. Once you have begun classes at TCU, you may only transfer in 12 hours of coursework total. Additionally, once a student has begun courses at TCU, you are no longer eligible to take lower division requirements away from TCU.
  • Complete Microsoft Certifications.
  • You can also review our Pre-Business plan for more information regarding lower-division requirements.

Again, welcome to TCU and the Neeley School of Business. You are now a part of our frog family!
