Information for Transfer Students

The process of applying for the Business Program is separate from the process of applying to Brandeis.

The Business Major at Brandeis is one of only two majors on campus for which students must apply and which is competitive. This means that there is no guarantee that all applicants will be accepted.  

There are two application periods during the year, one at the end of the fall semester and one at the end of the spring semester. Please read here about the process of applying to become a business major.

In addition to the process for applying, there are also prerequisites for applying.  Please read here to understand the sequence of courses that will allow you to apply for the major and later to complete it.

Information about the process of declaring a business Minor can be found here.

Once the process of transferring to Brandeis has been completed, and you have a UNET I.D., we, at the Business Program, can evaluate your courses for the Business Program.

This is different than transferring courses for general university credit by the registrar.

Courses that the registrar approves for general credit will only count for Business Program credit if the Undergraduate Advising Head (UAH) for the Business Program has separately approved them.

In order to begin the process of credit transfer, and enroll in business courses, please email Prof. Hagit Weihs, the UAH for the Business Program at hagit@brandeis.edu with the following information, as soon as you have a Brandeis UNET I.D.:

1.       Your Brandeis UNET I.D.

2.       What year you are in (freshman, sophomore, junior, senior)?

3.       The name of your previous school and university

4.       Your most current transcript from your previous school

5.       Syllabi (not just course descriptions) of business courses you have taken in your previous university and wish to get credit for in our program

Once we get all of these documents we will begin the evaluation process for the Business Program.

When we complete the evaluation, you will receive an email which details which of your courses we have approved for credit in the Business Program. After receiving the email, you will need to fill out the Transfer Credit Form.
