    • The Poole GPA is the grade point average calculation of all Accounting (ACC), Business Management (BUS), Economics (EC), Management Innovation Entrepreneurship (MIE) and Management (M) classes completed. Students can use the GPA Calculator tool for assistance in calculating a GPA.
    • Please note that some Poole courses are restricted to Poole College of Management major and minor students. Please see the Poole College of Management’s Courses and Enrollment website for more information regarding courses scheduling and availability.

All CODA admissions decisions are made through NC State’s Department of Registration and Records. Students should apply for only one Poole College of Management major, as decisions are made as a college rather than by department. Applying to multiple majors within the Poole College of Management does not increase a student’s chances of admission.
