Admission Requirements


Foundation entrance requirements

All departments in the College of Business and Management require foundation knowledge in accounting, economics, mathematics, statistics, and the behavioral sciences.

If a student enters UIS without these foundation courses, the courses can be completed during the first and second semester concurrent with other coursework.

However, foundation courses are prerequisites for most of the college and program core.

STUDENTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO MEET WITH THEIR ACADEMIC ADVISER in order to determine what courses they can enroll in while finishing their foundation coursework.

UIS courses that satisfy the foundation knowledge requirement include:

  • ACC 211 Introduction to Financial Accounting
    ACC 212
    Introduction to Managerial Accounting
  • ECO 201 Introduction to Microeconomics
    ECO 202
    Introduction to Macroeconomics
    OR ECO 315 Economics for Administration
  • ECO 213 Statistics for Business and Economics
  • MAT 113 Business Calculus OR other calculus
    MAT 114
    Finite Math or equivalent
  • Behavioral science course (psychology, sociology, etc.)
    Coursework equivalent to the above will be accepted on approval by the department.

Required: 2.0 GPA in the Foundation and a minimum grade of C- for each Foundation course.
