Students interested in pursuing a degree in COBE (except for the Economics BA, Quantitative Economics BA, Economics, Social Science, Secondary Education Emphasis BA, Business and Economic Analytics BS, and BBA in Management) must be a pre-business major and complete the COBE admission requirements prior to the declaration of a COBE major. Admission to COBE is required before a student may enroll in most upper-division business and economics courses.

Please see the COBE advising website: https://cobe.boisestate.edu/studentadvising/ to obtain specific information about the application process and application deadlines.

To be eligible for admission, students must:

  • 1. complete or be in the final semester of the following gateway courses with a grade of C- or better, and
