Frequently Asked Questions
Does acceptance into credit mean that students are free to choose either degree track?
Yes, with one significant qualifier: Business Administration/Studies demands higher non-credit math achievement than General Studies. Students in Business Studies must successfully complete MA0392 or MA0598 or achieve a Math L3 placement. Business Administration students must successfully complete MA0598 or MA1501 or achieve a Math L6 placement.
Business students may concurrently take MA0392, MA0598, or MA1501 with their business courses. Please refer to the Math Placement Table for further information.

When do I need to declare myself as a Business Administration or Business Studies major?
It is recommended that a student declare himself or herself as a Business Studies/Business Administration major as soon as possible so that the student’s advisor can appropriately advise the student regarding their studies. However, when a student accumulates 22 credits, they will need to formally declare a major of either General Studies or Business.
Will any course(s) satisfy the general electives requirements?
Yes, this should provide some flexibility in planning how students will meet the requirements for the A.A. in Business Studies or the A.A. in Business Administration. However, the Business program suggests that business students take the following courses as electives:
- CO1011: Introduction to Communication
- SS1011: Introduction to Psychology
- MA1601: College Algebra
- MA2701: Calculus I or MA2621: Business Statistics
