Undergraduate Programs / Minors
Suggested Sequence of Courses
The majors in the School of Business are designed primarily for upper-division students. Entering students should plan to complete their general education core and distribution requirements during their first two years. These courses provide excellent and necessary preparation for the major and its requirements.
In the first year, students may not take courses in the departments (except Economics 200, 214, and 215) but are strongly encouraged to complete Mathematics 177.
Students entering their second year may enroll in a variety of required courses at the 200-level, including introductory courses in their major.
In the third year, students with junior standing and with 60 credit hours or more may enroll in 300-level courses in the School of Business. At this time, students begin to take courses to fulfill the requirements of their major.

The appropriate department within the School of Business will also establish and maintain an appeals committee to receive, review, and determine the outcome of petitions by students for retention under extenuating circumstances. Preregistration course reservations will be canceled for any student who has been notified that he or she no longer meets the retention standards.
