Your credit evaluation documents are your golden ticket toward completing and earning your undergraduate degree. Even more important is to use them to create your academic plan. If you pencil in your courses at least two semesters out, we can work together to ensure you are meeting and scheduling prerequisite courses as needed.

On the Business Administration Course Offerings page, you will find the necessary information to help you plan:
  • Course prerequisites
  • Formats offered (print-based and/or online)
  • Online course rotation by semester
A couple of other questions you should tackle when planning your academic schedule are:
  • How long is it going to take me to earn my undergraduate degree?
  • Am I being realistic about reaching my goal?
Suppose you have 46 credits left to complete your degree. It is your intention and plan to take two courses (six credits) a semester during the fall and spring, but not summer. Thus you will be enrolled in a total of 12 credits a year. At this rate, you could expect to earn your degree in about four years. Does this match your goals? Do you want to be done sooner? If so, you will need to make some adjustments to the number of credits you take each semester or consider completing courses during the summer session.

You are the best judge of how much you are capable of handling. However, as your advisors, Elizabeth Swift and I are happy to provide guidance by reviewing your plan and answering any questions you might have along the way. We are here to help and look forward to keeping each of you on the path to graduation.
