Students should consult with their academic advisers to determine if some of their elective hours should be in the area of general education rather than management and business. Students using electives to complete a minor must also have the approval of their minor adviser.

Upper-division transfer credits must be approved by the office of Enrollment services and the student’s adviser. Students should consult with their adviser to insure appropriate elective coursework is pursued.
