Transfer Student Admission

The transfer applicant from outside the University of Miami must submit a satisfactory academic record in compliance with the standards of the University of Miami Office of Admission. The applicant must be in good academic standing at all institutions previously attended with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0. All transfer applicants to the School of Business Administration must have earned a grade of “B” or better and received college credit for a calculus course equivalent to MTH 161. The calculus course must be evaluated by submitting the syllabus and textbook title for review by the Department of Mathematics and Office of Undergraduate Business Education.

PLEASE NOTE: Some institutions use the words below in the title or description to describe their math courses.

  • Long Calculus
  • Brief Calculus
  • Applied Calculus
  • Business Calculus

Courses that use the above terms are NOT equivalent to UM's MTH161 and may not be used to fulfill the business school’s requirement. All calculus courses must be offered for 4 credits.

Some descriptions may state that Calculus 1 is the first part of a two/three-part course of a sequence ( described/numbered as Calculus 1, 2 and 3). These courses may be equivalent to UM's MTH140-141 sequence. The completed sequence (both must be completed not one completed and enrollment in the second), with the grade of B or better in both, are acceptable for entry to the SBA in lieu of the MTH161 requirement.

For credit to be awarded, all transfer coursework must be from an accredited institution and reflect a minimum grade of “C” (2.0). Any business course that is from a non-AACSB accredited institution will be accepted as an elective toward the degree requirements. An applicant may appeal the decision by submitting the syllabus and textbook title to the appropriate department for review. All grades earned in transfer courses shall be used to determine the overall cumulative grade point average. This includes repeated courses under any forgiveness policy at a previous institution.

Further, transfer coursework must meet specific curriculum requirements as determined by the Office of Undergraduate Business Education. Note that transfer students must complete 50 percent of the total Business Foundation and Professional Business Core and 50 percent of all major and all minor courses at the University of Miami. In addition, transfer students must comply with the Residency Requirement set out below.

It is strongly recommended that transfer applicants meet the following requirements at the time of transfer application:

  • One semester of microeconomics (ECO 211 or its equivalent as determined by the Department of Economics), which may also be fulfilled by:
    • A score of "4" on the AP Microeconomics exam;
    • A score of "5" on the IB Higher Level Economics exam.
  • One semester of macroeconomics (ECO 212 or its equivalent as determined by the Department of Economics).
  • One semester of financial accounting (ACC211 or its equivalent as determined by the Department of Accounting).
