Admission to the Business Administration Major
Admission to the Business Administration major involves two steps. Students who apply to the major are initially classified as Pre-Business. After completing the lower-division core requirements with a “C” (2.0) or better, students may apply to the Business Administration major.
All of the following requirements must be met for the degree. Students must earn a “C” (2.0) or better in each core course listed below. In concentrations that require ISDS 351, the course must be passed with a “C” (2.0) or better. For assistance in interpreting these requirements, contact the Business Advising Center.
Grades and Residence
Maintain a minimum 2.0 grade point average in all college level units attempted, all units attempted at CSUF, all units attempted in the major and all units attempted in the concentration. Earn a “C” (2.0) or better in each core course. A “C-” (1.7) or lower is not a passing grade.
Take all required core and concentration courses in the College of Business and Economics for a letter grade (A, B, C, D, F). The exceptions are calculus courses, which may be taken under the Credit/No Credit grading option; however, if it is also taken to meet general education requirements then it must be taken for a letter grade.
A minimum 30 units in the major and at least one-half of the units in the concentration (except Accounting, which requires 15) must be taken in residence in the College of Business and Economics; at least 15 of the last 24 units taken before graduation must be in residence in the College of Business and Economics.
