School of Business New Student Orientation
The School of Business Orientation program is a dynamic, in-depth introduction to what it means to be a student in UConn’s School of Business. A student will leave their orientation experience feeling confident about their academic requirements, the importance of experiential involvement and the opportunities that exist for each student, and most importantly, students will be excited and motivated to create a unique, individual experience which will lead to a successful career in Business!
Welcome New Huskies!
We are excited to meet newly admitted Business students at our in-person orientation programs this summer.

"Do I need to take the MPE?" Answer: YESAll Business students are asked to complete the MPE (Math Placement Exam) with a 22 or higher, regardless of prior experience or academic plans. Scores will not impact student placement or advisor recommendations for MATH courses, but a passing score will help a student be better prepared for the business math curriculum, and allow for a productive conversation with an Academic Advisor at Orientation.
"Do I need to take the GPS if I didn't send my scores to UConn?" Answer: YESAll Business students should review the guidelines for English placement and complete the Guided Placement Survey (GPS). Note that if you did not send test scores to UConn, then it is expected you complete the GPS. Advisors will use either the scores you sent to Admissions or your GPS results for placement information.
"Do I need to take the Chemistry Placement Exam?" Answer: NOBusiness students do not typically take Chemistry courses, so the Chemistry Placement Exam is not required unless the student plans to pursue Chemistry separately or a specific STEM field which requires it (pre-med/pre-dental, etc.).
"How do I get my college credits on my UConn transcript?" Answer: Take action now.Advisors will review important credit standing information at Orientation with each student individually, however students are expected to take specific actions if planning on coming with any AP and/or transfer credit prior to attending orientation, or at the latest, immediately following attending orientation. Required actions for students with Early College Experience (ECE) happen in the student's first term.
The School of Business accepts applications of eligible UConn students two times each academic year.
If already at UConn, it is important to work towards a parallel plan while you are preparing to apply to the School of Business to make progress towards graduation.
There are many minors offered by the School of Business that integrate well into many majors outside of Business.
