Major sheets

Major sheets are helpful planning tools that set out all requirements for the BBA degree in each of our six majors.  The Direct and Standard Admit version is helpful for students who are still deciding on a major. The versions below reflect curriculum rules for the 2020/21 academic year.  Major sheets are planning tools only. Consult your degree audit on MyUI to see all degree requirements.

Major sheets come in two forms: standard major sheets that are useful for printing and viewing, and fillable worksheets that you can type in and save to keep track of your own planning.

To use a fillable worksheet, download and save the worksheet to your device. View this short video on how to do that.

Degree audit

You can pull up a new degree audit anytime on your MyUI account. The BBA degree audit shows your progress in meeting all of your degree requirements, including:

  • General Education courses
  • Declared majors or minors (separate degree audit for each program of study)
  • University residence requirements
  • GPA requirements
  • Hours earned and needed for graduation

How do I find it?
Log into MyUI. Under the Student Information section, choose Degree Audit. Request an audit for your chosen program of study, and make sure to refresh this page to obtain the most recent version. Please review your degree audit frequently and bring an updated copy to all advisor appointments. 

Early registration

Early registration is the two-week period near the end of each semester when currently enrolled Iowa students have exclusive access to classes for the next semester. Students are assigned a date and time during the two-week period when they can register for the next semester. Earliest dates and times are assigned to fourth- and fifth-year students, followed by third-year students, second-year students, and first-year students.

During early registration, all upper-level courses (except those in economics) are restricted for enrollment to those students who have declared a major in the department. This ensures access to major courses for students in that major.

Prebusiness students
Students must schedule an appointment with their advisor before they will be permitted to register. A printed degree audit from MyUI and completed registration form are required for this appointment. Students who meet admission requirements and have applied to the college may be given permission to register for two major courses while the application is pending. More can be added after you are admitted to the college.

Direct admits and standard admits
Students must schedule an appointment with their advisor before they will be permitted to register. A printed degree audit from MyUI and a completed registration form are required for this appointment.

Business students with a declared major
You will automatically be authorized to register on your assigned date. You are not required to meet with your advisor prior to registration. You are encouraged to see your advisor if you need assistance or would like to do additional planning prior to registration. Schedule an appointment and bring a degree audit from MyUI with you.
