Responsibility of the Student
The student must become familiar with the academic policies, curriculum requirements and associated deadlines posted in the college catalog, which is available in both paper and electronic versions. The academic advisor will advise the student on all matters related to his/her program of study and will aid the student in the interpretation of policies whenever necessary. However, it is ultimately the student’s responsibility to be cognizant of and comply with all university policies and procedures and to meet all stated requirements for the degree. It is also the student’s responsibility to frequently monitor campus email and the university web site, as these electronic means of communication have replaced mass mailing as the university’s most effective and efficient ways to disseminate important information to the campus community.
General Education Requirements
The centerpiece of the University Core is a series of four interdisciplinary courses in Core Foundations. These courses synthesize skills in critical thinking, oral and written communications, technology and information literacy, and ethical reasoning.
Before being admitted to a business major, all students pursuing the B.B.A. degree must complete the Pre-Business Program.

Students who wish to major in business are classified as pre-accounting, pre-finance, pre-management, pre-marketing, or if they have not yet decided on a specific major within business, pre-business.
Students must have at least a 2.0 grade point average (GPA) in the eight pre-business courses and junior standing (56 hours) before being admitted into a business major.
Pre-business students are assigned to the advising coordinator or assistant advising coordinator during the term in which they expect to complete all pre-business requirements and are allowed to register conditionally for upper division business and economics courses for the next term. Final acceptance into a business major and enrollment in upper-division business and economics courses is dependent upon verification that all pre-business requirements have been met with a 2.0 average.
