Notes:

* Courses marked with an asterisk (*) require a minimum "C" grade in all prerequisites.

1. Students who take ACCT 1235 instead of ACCT 1110 and ACCT 1210 require an additional open 1000-4000 elective.

2. MATH 1120 and MATH 1130 are also acceptable in particular cases.

3. 1000-2000 level electives must be university transferable (UT) on the BC Council on Admissions and Transfer System (BCCAT).

4. This course constitutes a 3000-4000 required elective. Students who have taken BUSN 3730 prior to the Winter 2015 semester will be able to use it in place of ACCT 4850.

5. A minimum of 45 credit hours must be upper level courses, e.g. at the 3000 or 4000 level. Please keep this in mind when choosing your electives. The 45 hours includes both required courses and electives.

6. Students must complete BUS 4500, Career and Portfolio Development, in addition to the 45 hours of 3000-4000 level electives identified in point #5. Note that there is a significant amount of work required to successfully complete this course. Students are strongly encouraged to commence work on this course at an early date.
