What is a bulletin?

The Kelley School of Business Undergraduate Bulletin is a resource that provides students with the information they need to make the most of their undergraduate Business education and to graduate from the School in a timely manner. It is the official source of information regarding Kelley School of Business degree requirements, policies and procedures, and programs of study. Students pursuing degrees, minors, or certificates in other schools on the Bloomington campus should consult the IU Bloomington Bulletins website to find the appropriate bulletin for their degree program. 

Where to find degree information

General degree requirements for a B.S. in Business can be found in the Degree Requirements section of the bulletin.  Specific requirements for all Business majors, minors, and certificates can be found in the Majors, Minors, & Certificates section. While students are responsible for familiarizing themselves with the appropriate bulletin (see below), they should also track their degree progress on their Academic Advisement Report and can consult iGPS degree maps to see sample plans for completing the various Kelley majors.

Which bulletin year should you use?

Students follow the requirements included in the bulletin published in the year they first matriculated (enrolled) as a degree-seeking student at Indiana University Bloomington. For instance, a new first-year or transfer student beginning at IUB in the summer or fall of 2024 will be held to the requirements laid out in the 2024-2025 Bulletin of the Kelley School of Business. For questions regarding which bulletin to use, please consult the Kelley Academic Advising Office, busadv@indiana.edu.  To access Kelley School academic bulletins for other years, please see the IU Bloomington Bulletins site.  The requirements outlined in the bulletin are in effect at the time of matriculation and will remain constant throughout your time in the School, assuming you graduate within seven years.

Student Responsibility

Students are responsible for planning their own programs of study and for meeting the degree requirements for graduation. For advice regarding fulfilling these requirements and planning a course of study, students admitted to the Kelley School of Business are encouraged to regularly seek out academic advising from Kelley academic advisors. Although academic advisors will do their best to aid students, it is ultimately each student’s responsibility to plan an appropriate academic course of study and to fulfill the various degree requirements. Familiarizing themselves with the contents of this bulletin is a crucial first step that students can and should take to ensure they know what academic options are available to them and what requirements are expected of all students in the Kelley School of Business.
