First Year Requirements for the BBA
The student desiring a BBA degree is officially enrolled as a Pre-business student and is advised through University Advisement. In order to continue as a Pre-business major beyond the first year, a student must complete a minimum of 24 credit hours at Baylor; maintain a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA; and complete BUS 1101, BUS 1201, BUS 1350, ENG 1310, MTH 1308/1320 (if needed), and MTH 1309/1321 with a minimum grade of "C" in each course. If these requirements are not met, the student must change degree programs. Students meeting these requirements will then be advised by the Hankamer School of Business Undergraduate Office.
A student who has declared or desires to declare Pre-business may repeat only once no more than two of: ENG 1310, MTH 1308 or 1320, MTH 1309 or 1321, and the lower core business courses. Any student not meeting this requirement may no longer follow the BBA degree. Students failing any of these courses due to the attendance policy may be required to change degree programs.
