Diploma in Business Administration Required Courses

Pre-admission Courses

To be granted admission,* students must complete the following courses:

  • Fifteen credit hours (five courses) with an overall average of at least 60%:
  • English 1110 (or English 1021) and one other three-credit-hour English course*
  • Mathematics 1000**
  • Business 1000
  • A non-business elective (three credit hours)***

*Most students complete English 1080 as their second English course because it is a prerequisite for English 1110. Please note that English 1020 is the prerequisite for English 1021.

**Students may be required to write the Math Placement Test (MPT) to determine their level of preparedness in mathematics. Depending on the results, students may need to complete Math 1090 or foundation-level math courses before registering for Math 1000.

***Students who are required to complete Math 1090 based on the results of the MPT, may use it as their non-business elective.

*Additional admission criteria also apply.
