Important news about Tippie curriculum changes

Business Core Curriculum: Following a review process, important changes to some elements of the Business Core curriculum have been approved. These changes will be effective on the first day of fall 2020. See the FAQ.

BAIS Courses: Due to the recent name change from the Department of Management Sciences to the Department of Business Analytics, all MSCI courses will be reclassified as BAIS courses beginning fall 2020. For the purpose of fall registration, students will need to use “BAIS” in the Course Subject field in order to select courses from that department.

BAIS:3005 Information Systems and BAIS:3000 Operations Management: The Tippie College of Business has implemented a change in the format of two Business Core classes that will become effective Fall 2020. BAIS:3005 Information Systems and BAIS:3000 Operations Management will each be offered as 2-semester-hour courses. See the FAQ.

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.
