Who Should Apply
The BPP Minor and Certificate are both open to all UT undergraduates—business and non-business. Applicants must be degree-seeking undergraduates with upper-division standing and 24 hours taken in residence, and planning to graduate under the 2020-2022 and later catalog.
Admission to both the minor and the certificate is based on a student’s overall academic record. For priority admission consideration, apply by April 1st for the following fall semester and October 1st for the following spring semester. Late applications will be considered, but will not have priority over the current admission class.

Business & Public Policy (BPP) Minor Application
The Business & Public Policy (BPP) Minor is offered by the Business, Government & Society (BGS) Department of the McCombs School of Business. However, the minor is available to students of all majors—business and non-business--on the UT Campus and we encourage all to apply.
As per university policy, the Business & Public Policy Certificate, which was launched in 2014, remains available to students who intend to graduate under the 2018-2020 course catalog. The BPP minor’s effective date is September 1, 2020.
To be eligible to apply for the minor, students must:
- Be degree-seeking undergraduate students
- Have upper-division standing with 24 hours in-residence prior to application, and
- Have elected to be under the 2020-2022 course catalog
Once admitted, you must contact your academic advisor to have the minor to your degree profile. This is an important step in the process. The credential cannot be awarded to you when you graduate from UT - Austin if it has not been added to your degree profile.
