Basic Math and Computer Literacy Skills

Basic math and computer literacy skills: Students in the program are expected to enter with basic math and computer literacy skills.

Students may demonstrate basic math skills in one of the following ways: Math SAT score of 650 or higher, Calculus AP Exam score of 4 or higher, or passing a business math test offered by the business department with a score of 75% or higher. Students are required to pass the business math test even if they transfer in a college-level math course. For a fee students may take an online refresher course combined with the business math test. Although it is expected that most students will be able to pass the test with the online refresher course. Contact the department chair for the registration directions and further information about the business math test.

Students are expected to have completed an introduction to computers course or have the equivalent knowledge before taking BUS 243.

Many aspects of the business administration major must be completed sequentially.
