No. Any business transfer courses must be evaluated and formally approved by the College of Business faculty before they can be applied to the Business major. In many cases, a transfer course has already been evaluated in the past, and transfer credit will be immediately assigned to your record. If further evaluation is necessary, you should complete a Transfer Course Evaluation Form and attach a copy of the course syllabus that was used when the course was taken, along with a copy of your transcript. Turn in the completed form to OSS. The appropriate faculty member will then evaluate these business courses, and you will be contacted when the evaluation is complete. Please note: only 21 credits can be transferred into the Business major, with only 6 credits in a specialization area. Only 9 credits can be transferred into the Business minor, as well as the Accounting minor.
