Carson College of Business Certification Process and First Semester Courses

Certify in a Major

What happens after you submit your application

Our certification process has changed!

I applied to certify into a major in the Carson College of Business.  What happens next?

Once you have applied to certify, you will receive an email notifying you whether you have certified into the Carson College of Business. Certification can take one to two weeks to process.


Certified: You will be responsible for enrolling into the upper division business courses on your enrollment date/time.

Hold: You will receive notification of our decision at the end of the term and we process certification. If you certify, you will be responsible for enrolling yourself into your upper division business         courses. The Carson College of Business does reserve seats in the upper division business courses for students certifying at the end of the term.

Denied: If you do not certify into the Carson College of Business, please reach out to your academic advisor to help you determine your next steps.
