Any entering freshman admitted to GSU with an ACT Composite score of 16 or higher may be admitted directly to the department of the desired major in the COB.

Any entering freshman admitted to GSU with an ACT Composite score below 16 will be admitted to the College of Basic and Special Studies for advising.
Any entering freshman admitted to GSU with an ACT Composite score of 21 or above may elect to participate in the Honors Program and will be advised jointly by the Honors College and the department of major.
While all transfer credits are posted to a student’s record by GSU’s Office of the Registrar, the choice of which credits may substitute for specific courses in the chosen business curriculum is made by the department head and academic dean. It is the policy of GSU that only transfer credits with a grade of "C" and above may be accepted for degree credit.
A maximum of 60 semester hours from a junior/community college may be applied toward a baccalaureate business degree at GSU. Normally, only those courses taught at the freshman/sophomore (100/200) level at GSU will be accepted from a junior/community college toward a baccalaureate business degree at GSU.
At least 50 percent of the required business courses in a COB curriculum must be taken at GSU.
The College of Business supports all business student organizations, as well as Phi Beta Lambda, which is open to all majors. In addition to providing quality instruction, the College has a diverse faculty who are committed to assisting students in intellectual and professional development.
