    General Requirements

    Bachelor of science in business administration
    Business administration pre-professions
    Students entering college for the first time and eligible for admission to K-State must enroll in the business administration pre- professions program (BAPP). Students with previous academic work (either at K-State or elsewhere) requesting transfer to the College of Business Administration must have a 2.0 or higher grade point average and enroll in the BAPP curriculum. For purposes of admission, grade point averages will be based on all courses attempted at colleges or universities.

    The BAPP program provides course work in communications, mathematics, social sciences, humanities, and natural sciences. The purpose of the BAPP curriculum is to help students develop the descriptive and analytical foundation necessary for the study of business administration. Remaining ``core courses'' in business administration and courses in the degree-track (major) are taken after successful completion of the BAPP program.

    The BAPP is expressly designed as a non- degree program; students with 75 or more credit hours will not be allowed to enroll in BAPP. Students with more than 75 hours who have consistently met the grade point requirements may be admitted into degree-track majors.

    Admission to a degree-track (major) in accounting, finance, management, or marketing is necessary for graduation. Applicants for admission to one of the degree tracks, other than accounting and management information systems (MIS), will be accepted upon completion of a minimum of 45 BAPP credit hours with an overall grade point average of 2.50 or above. For accounting and MIS the grade point average for admission to the degree track is 3.0.

    **Mathematics requirement
    Students are eligible to take MATH 100 College Algebra if they meet one of the following prerequisites:
    1. MATH 010 Intermediate Algebra with grade of B or better
    2. Two years of high school algebra and a College Algebra PROB >= C of 60 or more on the ACT assessment
    3. A score of at least 18 on the mathematics placement test
    Students who don't meet these prerequisites are encouraged to take MATH 010 Intermediate Algebra before taking College Algebra. Credit received for Intermediate Algebra does not apply toward the hours required for graduation.
    Students are eligible to take MATH 205 General Calculus and Linear Algebra if they meet one of the following prerequisites:
    1. MATH 100 College Algebra with grade of C or better
    2. Two units of high school algebra and one unit of high school trigonometry
    Students are eligible to take MATH 220 Analytic Geometry and Calculus I if they meet one of the following prerequisites:
    1. MATH 100 College Algebra with grade of B or better and MATH 150 Plane Trigonometry with grade of C or better
    2. Three years of college prep math (including trigonometry) and a Calculus I Prob >= C of 55 or more on the ACT assessment
    3. A score of at least 26 on the mathematics placement test
    Students who test directly into MATH 205 or MATH 220 and complete the course will have the MATH 100 requirement waived, and three credit hours will be added to the unrestricted/nonbusiness electives requirement of his/her degree track program (two credit hours will be added if MATH 220 is taken).
    The exact sequence of the courses to be taken is worked out between student and advisor. There is some flexibility in scheduling. To enroll in any course, students must have prerequisites as stated in the catalog.

    Applications for a degree-track (major) may be made by the semester during which the student will have completed at least 45 credit hours of the pre-professional requirements. Decisions for admission will be made as soon as possible after the end of the semester.

    Degree requirements
    Candidates for the bachelor of science in business administration must complete at least 27 credit hours of resident instruction in upper-division courses after acceptance and enrollment in a degree track program in the college. Exceptions may be considered for those who have consistently exceeded a 2.50 grade point average on upper-division courses applied toward the degree. See additional residency requirements earlier in this catalog.
