How to Apply

Admission Information

Admission requirements for the online BBA program are the same as the traditional on-campus BBA degree. Please see the Admissions section for information on GPA requirements and application deadlines, as well as the link to the UW System website for online application. You are encouraged to contact the Online BBA Program Coordinator before applying for admission and paying the application fee. The program coordinator can review your previous credits for potential transfer credits and provide guidance.

Transferring to the Online BBA Program

If you have previous credits from another college and/or university, you may be eligible for transfer credit towards the BBA degree requirements. All credits will be reviewed for transfer to UW-Whitewater if the courses were completed at a regionally-accredited college or university.

Transfer guides are available for students transferring from the following colleges. These transfer guides are a tool for you to use if you plan to complete freshman and sophomore level courses at a transfer institution before beginning the Online BBA program.


You also have the option to use the Wisconsin Transfer Information System to conduct a self-review of potential transfer credit. This tool will assist you in seeing how your previous college coursework from another UW-System campus or Wisconsin Technical College may transfer to UW-Whitewater.

For a review of possible transfer credit, you can send unofficial transcripts to the Online BBA Program Coordinator,  who can review your previous credits for an estimate on how they will transfer towards the BBA online degree requirements.
