College Degree Requirements
Bachelor of Business Administration Degree Requirements
Credits for Graduation
All candidates for the BBA degree need a minimum of 120 credits to graduate, to include a minimum of 48 semester credits in courses other than those offered by the College of Business. The Health Care Administration major is exempt from the 48-credit requirement.
Student Professional Development Program
All students pursing a major in the College of Business must complete the Student Professional Development Workshops. All students pursuing a minor in the Department of Management and Marketing must complete the Student Professional Development Workshops. The program is designed to equip students with the skills needed to present themselves in a professional manner during their job search and to other professionals once they enter their chosen careers. Students are highly encouraged to complete the workshops prior to the end of their third semester on campus. The workshops are prerequisites for a number of 300 level courses in the College of Business Core and need to be completed prior to registration for those courses.
The program consists of four workshops: The Business Professional, Professional Image, Professional Etiquette, Networking Banquet. For more information, visit the College of Business website.
Grade Point Requirements
Candidates for the BBA degree must earn a minimum GPA of 2.00 in their major and in courses taken in residence. (See the special requirements for the Comprehensive Major in Accounting and Health Care Administration.) If a minor is required, or is to be listed as an official minor, the candidate must earn a minimum GPA of 2.00 in the minor.
- No course may be taken on a Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory basis as part of a major, minor, or certificate described by one of the departments in the College of Business.
- Business courses may be taken on a Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory basis only concurrent with or following completion of the student’s major or business minor.
The standard major in Business Administration is offered for those students interested in the flexibility of a major/minor or major/certificate program of study, particularly for those interested in a minor or certificate outside the College of Business. Many of the minors and certificates offered within the College of Business do not satisfy university academic concentration requirements when paired with the Business Administration major.
Proficiency requirements include basic prerequisite courses and/or entry-level competencies for the major. These are not counted as credits in the major.
