BSB in Business Administration:  Prepare for Admission to EIU

To start the B.S.B. in Business Administration program you should:

  • Complete the required lower division General Education and Business courses.
  • Request an Advisory Review from the EIU School of Business; and
  • Apply and be admitted to Eastern Illinois University. 

 Lower Division Requirements

An Associate in Science, or Associate in Arts, in Business Administration degree from an Illinois Community College is the easiest way to transfer to EIU with the lower division requirements complete.  However, if you have not earned one of these degrees, an EIU School of Business Academic Advisor can help you determine your best course of action for completing these courses.

General Education

EIU’s lower division General Education course requirements should be met prior to starting the Business Administration major.  Students have four options for completing these courses.  For information, go to:

Also, please see the Curriculum page for specific General Education Courses required for Business Administration majors.

Business Requirements

Submit the Advisory Review request.
