Your Current major
Your BIS concentration of interest (2 to 3 minors of interest)
What are your career plans after graduation?
2. Review application information provided by your BIS advisor and on the University College website. If you’re still interested in applying for the program, set up an appointment to review application process. Appointments only, please call 334-229-7620 to set up an appointment. This will ensure that we can prepare for you and have ample time to answer all questions.

Your academic advisor will review the application, eligibility requirements, and the general overview of your intended minor or concentration.
