Math/English Sequence

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.

Transfer Credits

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.
