B.S. in Commerce

Connect With Us

Even though students do not typically apply to the McIntire School until their second year, we encourage prospective students to learn about the School, business industries, career possibilities, and the application process before applying. 

We don’t track demonstrated interest in the program, and it’s not a factor in admission to McIntire.

What We Expect From You What You Can Expect From Us
  • Take advantage of the many opportunities to learn about the McIntire School curriculum, community, and resources.

  • Understand that we don’t track interest; interacting with our office will not influence your admission outcome.

Get Involved

Here are some ways that you can learn more and get involved.

Walk-In Advising

If you’re a current UVA student interested in McIntire's B.S. in Commerce Program, you can have a one-on-one conversation about the prerequisites, the admissions process, and the Commerce curriculum during walk-in advising, conducted by McIntire Ambassadors. 

Ambassadors are third- and fourth-year Commerce students trained to answer questions about McIntire prerequisites and curricular information, but more than that, they’re ready to share their experience about the McIntire classroom experience, curriculum, resources, and community.

McIntire Ambassador-Led Tour

McIntire offers 30-minute guided tours to prospective students and their families.

We invite current UVA students, as well as prospective transfer and high school students interested in business, to join the tours and learn more about our curriculum and life at McIntire. Registration is not required. The tour begins promptly at 1 p.m., just off the Lawn entrance in the fourth-floor lobby of Rouss & Robertson Halls.
