Advanced Business Standing
Undergraduate students with majors in the Departments of Accounting, Management & Marketing, and Economics and Finance must meet the advanced business standing (ABS) prerequisite as indicated on the course listings in the UW catalog. Completion of Advanced Business Standing is required to enroll in most upper division (3000/4000 level) courses taught in the College of Business.
The three components to Advanced Business Standing:
- Complete the following courses or their equivalents with a grade of "C" or better.
- 2.50 cumulative UW institution GPA or 2.50 transfer GPA.
- 60 earned hours or junior class standing.
The ten courses are:
|WA/COM1||See USP list of approved courses|
|WB/COM2||See USP list of approved courses|
|MATH 2350||Business Calculus|
|MATH 2355||Mathematical Applications for Business|
Or, if you are an ECON, CBEC or FIN major, you are encouraged to complete
|MATH 2200||Calculus I|
|MATH 2205||Calculus II|
|STAT 2010, 2050 or 2070||Principles of Statistics|

NOTE: Undergraduate students who are enrolled in upper-division courses without Advanced Business Standing or other prerequisites are identified and administratively dropped at the beginning of each semester. Transfer and re-enrolling students must satisfy the same requirements as continuously enrolled students. Once you have been dropped from a course, verification of prerequisites does not guarantee re-enrollment if the class is full.
