BUSI and BUSN Course Equivalency

Courses offered by the Faculty of Business Administration at St. John’s campus are given the BUSI prefix. Business courses offered by Grenfell Campus are given the BUSN prefix. Students should note that the business programs and courses offered by the Faculty of Business Administration (FBA) are not directly equivalent with the business programs and courses offered at the Grenfell Campus.

Please note that students cannot receive credit for both a BUSI course and its BUSN equivalent. In instances when a student has completed both courses, the higher mark of the two courses will be used for meeting degree requirements. For example, if a student completes both BUSN 1010 and BUSI 1000, the higher of the two marks will be used.

It is important to note any notes or conditions in the course equivalency table. For example, BUSN 1020 is not equivalent with BUSI 1600, but BUSN 1020 can be used as an unspecified business elective.

The Faculty of Business Administration will conduct a review of all course equivalencies every five years. Note that the table below is only for BUSN courses completed at the Grenfell campus. Any transfer credits that have been awarded as BUSN courses cannot be automatically used as BUSI courses; these BUSN courses need to be re-evaluated by the Evaluation Officer for credit.
