All students who are interested in graduating with a business degree start by being declared as “pre-majors.” All business students must complete core curriculum requirements and the pre-business core. As a pre-major, you are required to complete nine courses in the Pre-Business Core. Once you have completed the pre-business core, you will meet with an advisor to declare your business major.
Students must complete the nine classes in the pre-business core and be in good academic standing (2.0 University GPA) to declare a Business major. Contact the Student Success Center to declare a Business major. Bring a completed major worksheet (see below) to your advising appointment.
