We would like to accept every TCU student who is interested, but business is a popular major, so admission is very competitive. To declare a business major, you must formally apply for admission to upper-division courses (3000 and above), usually during your sophomore year. 

First, make sure you have read, understood and met the requirements

Only after you have fulfilled the requirements, fill out and submit the application

Additional admission requirements* must be completed the semester you apply: 

  • Entering Neeley Professionalism Modules
  • Résumé Workshop
  • In-Person Interview
  • Virtual Interview
  • Speaker Event

* These requirements may be completed virtually or in-person depending on the situation. More information on how to complete the requirements will be in the TCU Online course for the Entering Neeley Experience once a valid application has been submitted. You will be notified if any changes occur throughout the semester.
