Intercollege Transfer Application

Intercollege transferring to either BBA program (on campus or online) requires additional coursework and both programs are intended to be degree-completion programs. Neither program has a major associated with it.


UIC Business offers minors for students outside of the college. Completion of one of these programs will be noted on the official UIC transcript upon graduation. Students seeking one of these minors are required to have a 2.50/4.00 UIC and Cumulative GPA and have completed at least one semester at UIC.

UIC Business offers the following minors:

Please visit the UIC Course Catalog for more information on UIC Business Minors.

Once your minor is approved by UIC Business, your home college will officially declare it. To ensure you have access to Business courses, please be sure to submit your application before registration begins. You will not be able to register for the courses required of your minor until it is officially declared.
