Planning on attending school for accounting, need advice on the process

So, when I get out of my initial enlistment shortly, I’ll be looking at attending Mizzou, Michigan State, Virginia, or Texas, to get my accounting degree. Since I completed a few courses while I was deployed, I’ll need to apply as a transfer student, as far as I’m aware, even though I don’t meet the 30 credit requirement listed on their website. Will I just be a freshman transfer student in that case then? Also, for most of, if not all of the schools, you apply to the business/commerce school in your sophomore year, and then again for the accounting major your junior year (that’s how I understood it). What would I declare as my major until I applied for the business school?
