I will be applying to Eller as a double major. Anything I should know about?

As a Zipperman Scholar, you can apply for a double major upon admission to the Professional Program (as long as one of the majors is MIS).  Zipperman's are the only students in Eller who have the opportunity to double major from the get-go!!  If you are applying this semseter send Patti Ota an email so she can give your name to the Undergraduate office. ota@email.arizona.edu
