Please visit the 'Application and Admission Requirements' under the Prospective Students tab for information.
No, it is only necessary to fill out the Apply Texas application and list your first choice major as a business major if you will be a first-time student at Texas State. The Apply Texas application serves as both the application to Texas State and McCoy College when a business major is listed. The McCoy College Application for Admission, available online at www.advising.mccoy.txstate.edu/apply, is only for students currently attending Texas State that either did not meet initial admission requirements or are wanting to change their major to business.
Yes, see below for more details.
No, a calculus course can be substituted for MATH 1329. The course must be an equivalent to MATH 2471. If the course is listed on the equivalency guides as an ELNA or ELADV rather than 2471, the course must be evaluated by the math department to determine if it will substitute for the MATH 1329 requirement. The student must provide proof of the evaluation with the application or prior to submitting the application.
The McCoy College of Business Administration is a capped enrollment program at Texas State. The competitive review is to consider students for admission to McCoy College who do not meet the automatic requirements. The number of students admitted who do not meet automatic admission criteria is determined by how close the college is to meeting its enrollment cap.
Students seeking McCoy College admission should make ENG 1310, ENG 1320, and MATH 1329 priorities since they are required to be eligible for admission. Students may also complete the general education core curriculum and unrestricted lower-division and upper-division business core courses that may apply towards their degree program if admitted*. By sticking with courses that are part of the business core and general education core, a student who is denied admission can easily apply these courses towards an alternative degree program that allows a business administration minor.
*The "Changing to a Business Major" brochure provides more information and a list of these courses. University College advisors are available to assist students with selecting courses prior to admission.
The priority dates are recommended dates by which applications should be submitted and are not deadlines. Students may still submit applications after the priority dates but University deadlines apply to those not yet admitted to McCoy College.
Applying by the priority dates eases the transition process and allows for a more timely decision. Since McCoy College is a limited enrollment program, applications received after the priority date will be considered for admission on a space-available basis.
Applications are reviewed chronologically according to the date they were completed. For students currently enrolled at Texas State decisions are typically made within 10 business days. For students applying for both Texas State and McCoy College admission, the time frame ranges from 2 to 6 weeks depending on the volume of applications at a given time.
Current Texas State students interested in becoming a business major may meet with an advisor from the University College Advising Center. The advisors assist students with identifying strategies for success and course selection from the core curriculum and unrestricted lower-division and upper-division business core.
Students wishing to declare a business administration minor must meet with the academic advisor for their major. The major academic advisor provides advising for business administration minor courses. McCoy College admission is not required to declare a business administration minor. A list of Texas State academic advising centers is available here.
Business administration minor requirements are available here.
No, McCoy College does not offer any online degree programs. A few online courses are offered in the general education core curriculum and through correspondence study. At this time, Business Law is the only McCoy College course offered through correspondence.
The BBA with a major in management program is also offered at the Round Rock Higher Education Center. Courses at this center are designed for students working full-time, and take place in the evenings.
