Students planning to pursue graduate degrees are strongly advised to take MATH 1900 as an elective. Business majors should not take MATH 1100
Two hours of non-business courses may be in physical education (SSPE). It is important that you consult your advisor when choosing electives!
Placement in beginning English and Math courses is determined by the Math and English Placement Test. The required Math courses in the Business Core are MATH 1500 & MATH 1700. Any non-developmental Math courses (1010 or higher) taken to meet the prerequisites for these courses may be credited as ELECTIVES toward the BSBA degree.
A minimum of 24 hours of the business core must be completed at Shawnee State University.
Upper Level/Lower Level Course Credit
Any student having earned credit for an upper-level course cannot subsequently apply credit for a lower sequence course toward graduation. Example: A student who earned credit for BUMG 3100 could not subsequently use the lower-level BUMG 2100 to receive course credits toward graduation. This is also applicable to BUFI 2450 and BUMK 2100.
