Special notes for major:
Normally, an ACCT major course may be repeated only once. Students may repeat only a course in which a C+ grade or lower was earned. Only three accounting major courses (3/43000) may be repeated and counted toward the accounting major. All attempts count in the computation of the major, upper-division business and cumulative GPA.
A basic knowledge of and the ability to use personal computers for accounting applications, including an electronic spreadsheet such as Excel, is required to major in accounting. Students should possess such knowledge and skills, if not already possessed, before taking any upper-division accounting major course or during the first quarter of the term during which the course is taken. The department office can provide recommendations on self-study materials to acquire the knowledge and skills.
