All students are required to take a set of basic business courses, or prerequisites, prior to taking their core courses. Students must complete the set of basic business courses listed below, or submit transcripts from other schools that carry equivalent courses with a grade of "B" or better. We offer survey courses online in place of many undergraduate prerequisites, designed for non-business undergraduates.
If you would like a pre-application evaluation of your transcript and prerequisites, you can e-mail or fax (662-325-1891) your transcript to Angelia Knight. Please note that a pre-application evaluation does not imply acceptance into the program.
Current Students: You have online access to your own program of study through a tool called CAPP Compliances located under the My Banner Tab, Academic Records menu.
