To be admitted to the Michael F. Price College of Business, a student must first be admitted to the University of Oklahoma. Inquiries concerning admission to the University should be addressed to the Office of Admissions, University of Oklahoma, 1000 Asp Avenue, Room 127, Norman, OK, 73019-4076.
Freshmen and transfer students who have not completed 24 semester hours with at least a 2.50 combined retention grade point average are automatically enrolled in University College upon their admission to the University of Oklahoma. University College students may not enroll in upper-division (3000-level or higher) Business Administration courses. All students taking 3000-level or higher business courses must have junior standing and meet the grade point average, course, and permission requirements.
Admission to an undergraduate program within a degree-recommending college at the University of Oklahoma (Norman campus) shall be based upon the requirements of the University of Oklahoma that are in effect at the time of a students initial enrollment in any institution (including OU) in the Oklahoma State System of Higher Education.
Students are admitted to Price College once they have earned at least 24 semester hours of college credit with a combined retention grade point average of at least a 2.50. Enrollment in upper-division business courses requires completion of the following:
Academic credit from any division of the University of Oklahoma Norman campus, Health Sciences Center, OU-Tulsa or Continuing Education is considered resident credit at the University of Oklahoma. Grades and hours earned at any of these divisions are included in the OU retention and cumulative grade point averages for purposes of admission or readmission to the University, and to the individual colleges within the University.
Students not admitted to Price College may elect business courses subject to the prerequisites and minimum GPA requirements; however, business students will receive priority. Students from outside the College who seek academic advising on business course selections should inquire in the Price Academic Advising Services, Suite 1010 Price Hall.
Students must complete the requirements outlined on the following pages for the degree and major chosen.
Emphasis in this program has been placed on an educational rather than a training or vocational approach, although in certain areas, provisions for a limited amount of specialization have been made. The curriculum is designed to provide:
(a) an extension and intensification of the cultural foundation begun in the secondary schools,
(b) a comprehensive view of the general principles and procedures practiced in the business world, and
(c) in the junior and senior years, a limited amount of professional education in certain specialized subjects.
With this degree program, a student must choose one of the following majors: accounting, economics, energy management, entrepreneurship and venture management, finance, general management, human resources management, international business, management information systems, marketing, or supply chain management.
Price College offers students the option of double majors. A double major consists of hours in the selected major and completion of specific requirements of the additional major. A double major will add to the required number of hours to complete a single major business degree. Only one degree will be awarded, however both majors will be listed on the students transcript. Students who are not majoring in business may not double major in Price College. No single course may be used by a student to satisfy a major requirement in two majors.
Minors are offered to both students majoring in business and those majoring in subjects offered in other colleges. No single course may be used by a student to satisfy a major requirement and a minor requirement. Minors are offered to business majors in the following areas:
Minors consist of 12 credit hours of specific coursework in the selected minor. Business Administration core requirements are excluded from the minor requirements. Students majoring in subjects other than business may obtain a minor in the following areas:
The Price Academic Advising Services office offers academic counseling for all students desiring to double major or minor in any area of business. Appointments may be made online at www.ou.edu/biz.
This program is designed to provide foundational study in the functional areas of business while a student is pursuing his or her undergraduate degree. The designated coursework may be applied toward degree requirements in the masters-level professional degree programs offered through the Price College, as well as be used as electives to complete ones undergraduate degree. Students in any field of study in their junior or senior years may apply for admission to the accelerated program. Because accelerated program students will be enrolled with graduate students in graduate-level classes (5000 or above), admission to the accelerated program will be highly selective and performance closely monitored.
The professional degree programs of Price College assume no prior training in either business administration or related disciplines. Accelerated Program students must designate one of the professional degree programs in business administration prior to the completion of 12 credit hours of courses in the Accelerated Program. The options include the Master of Business Administration, Juris Doctor/Master of Business Administration, Master of Business Administration/ Master of Arts (French, German or Spanish), Master of Business Administration/Master of Science (Mathematics), Master of Business Administration/Master of Library and Information Studies, Master of Business Administration/Master of Science in Construction Administration, and Master of Accountancy.
Students admitted to the Accelerated Program will be provided a plan of study that considers the students academic background and the number of elective hours remaining in the students undergraduate program. The plan of study must be approved for both the student's undergraduate degree and the Accelerated Program. Upon receipt of an undergraduate degree, accelerated program students in good standing are admitted to graduate study in a masters-level professional degree program offered through the College of Business. At least 32 credit hours in the professional degree program must be taken after receipt of a bachelor's degree.
Undergraduate students who have completed 90 credit hours or more may be admitted to the Accelerated Program. After 75 hours of undergraduate study, students interested in the Accelerated Program should take the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT). The GMAT is offered by the Educational Testing Service of Princeton, NJ on demand at various sites in Oklahoma and throughout the world. Only students with a cumulative grade point average at the University of Oklahoma of at least 3.00 and who receive a score of 500 or more on the GMAT will be considered for admission to the Accelerated Program. The grade point average must be based on at least 60 credit hours taken at the University of Oklahoma. Admission is determined by the grade point average, the GMAT scores, and evidence of maturity, motivation and leadership potential as indicated by personal interviews and letters of recommendation. Though the admission decision may be made prior to the completion of 90 undergraduate credit hours, acceptance is contingent upon continued performance at a high level.
Applications must be supported by official transcripts of previous study, an official report of the candidates score on the GMAT, and three letters of recommendation. The material must be received by April 1 for consideration for fall admission, by December 1 for spring admission and by April 1 for summer admission.
(The rules and regulations of this catalog become effective beginning summer term, 2010.)
1. Transfer students are required to meet the degree requirements andregulations of the degree program that is in effect at the time of their first enrollment in the state system provided they complete the work for a degree within a maximum of seven years. If the work for a degree covers a period longer than seven years, students must adopt a degree program within seven years of the current requirements. (Example: The 2009–2010 requirements may be in effect only until the end of the 2016 school year [Spring, 2016].)
2. Resident students shall be governed by the degree requirements and regulations in effect at the time of their initial enrollment at the University of Oklahoma provided they complete the work for a degree within a maximum of seven years. If work for a degree covers a period longer than seven years, students must adopt a degree program within seven years of the current program. (See example in preceding paragraph.)
3. Students may adopt any later degree program which becomes effective while enrolled at the University of Oklahoma if they report this change to the Price Academic Advising Services Office, Suite 1010 Price Hall.
4. Credit in the major which is more than 10 years old may not be applied toward a bachelor’s degree unless it is validated by the major division.
Students in Price College or business majors in University College may receive information and assistance in Suite 1010 Price Hall. Full-time academic counselors maintain records on all undergraduate business majors and provide them with information concerning admission, degree audits, degree requirements, contract and stop-out.
Career and academic advisement about specific course information is available from the faculty in the major divisions.
THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR MEETING ALL GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS LIES WITH THE STUDENT.
To be considered full time, an undergraduate student must be enrolled in at least 12 hours in a fall or spring semester and six hours in a summer session. The recommended maximum credit hour enrollment for a regular semester according to the students cumulative grade point average is as follows:
Less than 2.50 16 hours maximum;
2.503.00 17 hours maximum;
3.003.50 18 hours maximum;
3.504.00 19 hours maximum.
Enrollments of 20 hours or more in a fall or spring semester and 10 hours or more in a summer session, must be approved by the Director in the Price Academic Advising Services Office, Suite 1010 Price Hall. Students requesting overload enrollments must have earned a 3.50 GPA in both OU and combined areas.
Undergraduate students are not eligible to enroll in business courses numbered 5000 and above. The only exceptions to the above are graduating seniors who have petitioned the Graduate College to receive graduate credit for the course and whose petitions have been approved.
Graduate-level business courses may not count toward the undergraduate degree, however a student may petition to count non-business courses.
When absences seriously affect a students classwork, the instructor will report this fact to the Office of Admissions and Records. The information will also be forwarded to the Price Academic Advising Services Office.
The resident grade point average includes all courses taken at the University of Oklahoma (including correspondence and extension work) that apply toward a degree in Price College. Academic credit from any division of the University of Oklahoma Norman campus, Health Sciences Center, OU courses taught in Tulsa or Continuing Education is considered credit at the University of Oklahoma. Grades and hours earned at any of these divisions are included in the OU retention and cumulative grade point averages for purposes of retention.
The transfer grade point average includes all courses transferred from other institutions that are accepted by the University of Oklahoma.
The combined retention grade point average is computed with both transfer and OU credits. Both the resident and overall GPAs consist of three areas: the major, upper-division business, and overall degree. Minimum retention grade point averages of 2.50 are required in all of these areas to be eligible to graduate.
A minimum grade point average of 2.50 OU retention and combined retention is required for good standing in the Michael F. Price College of Business.
A student who has an enrollment stop for poor scholarship is not eligible to be considered for re-enrollment until after at least one semester has elapsed following the stop. At this time, a student who is stopped from Price College is eligible to apply for readmission. An appeal for readmission, however, does not guarantee automatic readmission. Each request is considered on its individual merit. These students will have one semester to either rectify all deficiencies or meet the conditions for continued enrollment. Those failing to do so will be stopped again from the College for a period of three calendar years after which they may apply for readmission to the College.
All applications for readmission must present clearly documented evidence indicating a high probability the student will successfully complete the B.B.A. degree program. The application will be considered based upon standards of the Petition Committee of the College or such other committee as the dean might designate. If readmission is granted, it will be subject to such terms and conditions as the committee may prescribe. Some students who are stopped out from Price College may still be eligible for continued enrollment under the University retention policy. These students may continue without interruption only if they are accepted by a college other than the Michael F. Price College of Business.
Candidates for the BBA degree must complete their last 30 hours as resident students at the University of Oklahoma. However, if a candidate has completed the last 51 hours as a resident student at the University of Oklahoma, nine of the last 60 hours may be taken at another university or by correspondence from OU. Students must take a minimum of 24 hours of upper-division business courses in residence for the Bachelor of Business Administration degree. Students must earn 60 hours from a four-year institution.
1. A maximum of 62 hours will transfer for credit from a two-year college.
2. Credit from a two-year college will be accepted to meet lower-division requirements and free electives only.
3. A maximum of six hours of transfer work will apply toward the major.
Students may not repeat a course in which they earned a grade of A or B, unless the course is one in which there is a change of subject matter (e.g., OSLEP, Independent Study).
If a student repeats a course at the University of Oklahoma for any purpose, the grade received the last time the course was taken becomes the grade for that course. All previous attempts are included in computing grade point averages, but credit for the course is counted only once toward the hours required for the degree. The exception is if it falls in the University repeat policy which affects the retention and graduation grade point averages.
A maximum of 12 semester hours, not to exceed one course per semester, may be taken on a pass/no pass basis. This option may be applied to only social science electives and non-business free electives.
A student may earn only one Bachelor of Business Administration degree. If a student has graduated and is returning for a second degree:
1. The first degree may not be in business.
2. At least two semesters must be taken in residence at OU.
3. At least 30 additional hours must be completed in the college of the second degree. The 30 hours must be in addition to the total number of hours completed by the student for the first degree.
4. At least 24 hours of the 30 must be 3000-4000 level business courses.
If a student is pursuing concurrent degrees in two colleges:
1. Both degrees must be completed and certified in the same semester.
2. A graduation application must be filed for each degree. Two diplomas will be awarded.
3. At least two semesters must be taken in residence at OU.
4. At least 30 additional hours must be completed beyond the degree that requires the least number of hours.
5. At least 24 hours of the 30 must be 3000-4000 level business courses.
1. A combined maximum of 60 hours credit by correspondence courses, extension courses, and advanced standing examinations may be applied to the Bachelor of Business Administration degree with the following constraints:
a. A combined maximum of 32 hours of correspondence and extension work.
b. A maximum of 30 hours of lower-division credit by advanced standing examinations.
c. A maximum of 30 hours of upper-division credit by advanced standing examinations. (Also see Credit by Examination, below.)
2. Credit is given for all correspondence work except for courses presented for the major. Correspondence study may be taken in the major to be used only in the computation of the major grade point average.
3. A maximum of six hours from the 15 hours of upper-division business core courses may be taken by correspondence.
4. Correspondence work transferred to the College is subject to the same restrictions for all transfer work. Upper-division business courses completed through correspondence and transferred to the College are subject to departmental approval.
1. Students may enroll in correspondence courses by obtaining authorization from Price Academic Advising Services and by contacting the Center for Independent and Distance Learning, 1600 S. Jenkins, Room 101, Norman, OK 73072-6507. Phone: (405) 325-1921.
2. A student may enroll in a maximum of six hours of correspondence at one time.
3. If students are concurrently enrolled in correspondence and in residence credit, the total number of hours for one semester may not exceed the recommended maximum shown under Credit Hour Load based on their overall grade point average.
4. A student must secure written permission from a counselor in the Price Academic Advising Services (1010 Price Hall) on the correspondence application form.
Students who feel they have a sufficient knowledge of the subject matter of a course offered by the University may take an advanced standing examination for undergraduate credit in the course.
A maximum of 60 hours of credit by advanced standing examinations may apply to the Bachelor of Business Administration degree. A maximum of 30 hours of lower-division credit and a maximum of 30 hours of upper-division credit may apply. (Also see paragraph one of Correspondence Courses, above.) Students who have received a grade in any course, other than a W, may not subsequently take the same course by advanced standing.
The Center for Independent and Distance Learning administers advanced standing examinations by individual appointment for credit in courses offered by Price College.
Students must apply for the degree during their last semester. Deadlines are March 1 for spring graduates, July 1 for summer graduates and November 1 for fall graduates. Application forms are available in Suite 1010 Price Hall.
Students may graduate with Distinction if they have an overall and OU cumulative grade point average (including the last semesters grades) of at least 3.50. Graduation with Special Distinction requires at least a 3.75 overall and OU cumulative grade point average. To be eligible for Distinction or Special Distinction, 51 of the last 60 hours must be taken at the University of Oklahoma. No student who has been subject to disciplinary action will be granted a degree with Distinction or Special Distinction.
