Most students apply after their sophomore year. The application consists of four parts:

  • GPA: Grades will be evaluated by assessing the following:
    • Prerequisite GPA in EXDM 300, ACC 200, FIN 201, and MKTG 201 (applications with competitive letter grades in at least two of these classes will be reviewed more favorably)
    • Last 30-credit-hour GPA and BYU GPA (calculations will use the posted university grades)
  • Résumé: We value content-rich résumés that are properly formatted and polished. 
  • Essay: We look for a demonstration of passion in recreation, events, and venue management areas.
  • Transcripts: Transcripts are examined for past academic performance.

The application is due on the last business day of June at 4:30 p.m. MT. All prerequisites must be completed in order to apply.
