Applications from current Stony Brook students must be completed and submitted online in accordance with the Registrar’s deadlines from processing major/minor declaration forms.

Application Deadlines 

Business major / accounting minor applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. Time periods for major declarations are set by the Registrar’s Office each semester.

Denied Applications

Students whose applications for the business major or accounting minor that have been denied can bring up their GPA and apply again in a future semester. 

Students can also consider declaring a major related to business (i.e. Economics) and/or completing an internship in business. Please visit the Career Center for information on completing an internship in business without being a business major.
