  • 60 earned hours or junior class standing.

Introduction to Information Management

NOTE: Undergraduate students with majors in the Departments of Accounting & Finance, Management & Marketing, and Economics must meet the ABS prerequisite as indicated on the course listings in the University of Wyoming (UW) Catalog.  Undergraduate students who are enrolled in upper-division (3000/4000-level) business courses without ABS 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.


1Transfer grades are not counted in the UW GPA (see UW Catalog for additional information). Transfer students who have not attended the University of Wyoming, and therefore do not have an established UW institutional/cumulative GPA, and who have completed the required ten (10) courses with a C or better, have 60 earned credit hours, and have a 2.50 cumulative TRANSFER GPA will be awarded ABS.
