Finance Undergraduate Admission

Finance students learn how to raise, invest, and manage capital in creative, productive, and responsible ways. We also offer the Advanced Financial Analysis (AFA) degree, an honors-level program that provides students with a deeper foundation in finance and accounting, supplemented by additional technical competence in financial modeling and coding as applied to finance problems.

BCOR specifically refers to students in the integrated (BCOR) curriculum. Legacy criteria applies to students in the non-integrated curriculum. To determine which curriculum you are assigned, visit Eccles.link/bcor or email advising@eccles.utah.edu.

*Submitting an application does not guarantee admission. A committee will review students’ full academic records and admit on a case-by-case basis. Admission to all Eccles School majors are subject to the Eccles School Repeat Policy. Submitting an application does not guarantee admission to the major.

Students who do not meet all of these criteria are still encouraged to apply.
The admission committee will conduct a holistic review and consider grades in quantitative courses, number of repeated courses, and overall academic performance (including transfer coursework).

Students may appeal a negative decision to the admission committee once, either after a first or second denial.
The committee’s decision after an appeal is final, so students who appeal after an initial denial forfeit their opportunity for a second application. To submit an appeal, students must email Madeline Rossman a short statement, indicating the wish to appeal and explaining any special circumstances that will help the committee evaluate the case.

**Students who are conditionally admitted must meet certain grade and GPA requirements to maintain their admission.
