Application Information

BYU Marriott offers ten limited-enrollment undergraduate programs. These programs are highly competitive. For more information, please see below.

Application Requirements

General Information

  • You may apply to a maximum of three undergraduate programs at once
  • Academic (GPA measures) and holistic (essay and resume) criteria are evaluated in the admissions process
  • Entry is competitive; not every student who satisfies the minimum criteria will be guaranteed acceptance
  • Students are required to rank their program preferences (these preferences will not be shared with the admissions committee)
  • Switching BYU Marriott majors is not allowed once accepted
  • By accepting admission, students commit to a junior core during the upcoming fall semester and to subsequent coursework in sequence according to the program’s flowchart
  • According to university policy, students must declare a major before reaching sixty credit hours. Declaring pre-management qualifies. However, students should apply to BYU Marriott before accruing ninety credit hours

Academic Criteria

  • The admissions committee may review your entire academic record when processing your application
  • Each program has 3-5 prerequisite courses
  • All prerequisites must be completed before the application deadline (last business day of June)
  • To be eligible to apply, prerequisite GPA must be at least 3.00. For averages, please see the admission statistics below

Repeated and Transferred Prerequisites

  • The application process discounts repeated and transferred prerequisite courses to provide the admissions committee a more objective evaluation of applicants
  • This discount does not change the actual grades on your transcript; it is displayed only on your application
  • The standard discount for transferring or repeating prerequisite courses is one grade-step (e.g., A to A-)


  • Each undergraduate program requires an essay. For more information, please see our Essay Tips


  • Each program, with the exception of accounting, requires a résumé submission. Download the BYU Marriott Résumé Template for help with résumés
