What is Direct Admission? 

Students with a solid academic record in high school can qualify for direct admission to the Wilson College of Business. High school achievers have shown they are ready to excel in the college classroom. So, for those who qualify, we waive the all requirements to become fully admitted to the Wilson College of Business before taking even the first college class.  

In addition, direct admission students qualify for a distinct session of BUSINESS 1000.  This will provide a head start for moving achievers into key student leadership roles throughout the college, a role that helps business graduates further distinguish themselves from the competition.


Who qualifies for Direct Admission?

You are a first-year college student who wants to pursue a business degree, and are admitted to the university, and meet the following criteria: 

You have a high school GPA of 3.85, or

High school GPA of 3.5 and 25 or higher on the ACT (SAT 1200 or higher).


Do international students qualify?


What about scholarships?

Those who qualify for Direct Admission and the UNI Business Scholar Academy, may also be eligible to receive various University and UNI business college scholarships. 

How do you get started?

Apply to UNI. We will automatically review your application to determine if you're eligible for Direct Admission to the College of Business. You will be notified by the business college dean of your acceptance. Watch for that important letter.

When you attend the University orientation to schedule your first-semester classes, you will be enrolled in the distinct section of BUSINESS 1000.
