Students who want to begin to study business, but have not yet decided on a particular major within business may enter the Graham School of Business as a Business major.  The Graham School of Business has recommended courses common to all Graham School of Business majors in which these students may enroll while they determine their chosen field of study.  Consultation with an academic advisor, faculty within the various disciplines, and independent inquiry of professionals in the field are encouraged in the process of determining a major.  As the Business major is a starting point meant to guide students in their degree search, it is recommended that students matriculate into a degree program by the end of the sophomore year or approximately 60 credit hours.

Requirements for Graduation:

The General Education Requirements of the college require students to successfully complete a First Year Seminar, Foundations, Disciplinary Perspectives, and a Constellation.  Students who enter college with 30 credit hours completed will not take a First Year Seminar course and therefore must take an additional 3 credits of non-business coursework for graduation.  Transfer students that are awarded 60 or more credits upon acceptance to York College will not be required to complete a Constellation.  A minimum grade of 2.0 is required for First Year Seminar and all courses taken as part of Foundations.  Courses used to complete General Education Requirements may not be taken on a pass/fail basis.  In addition, students must attain a 2.0 or higher in each course that serves as a prerequisite to a subsequent business course (refer to the course description for specific prerequisites).  Failure to attain a 2.0 in prerequisite courses may lengthen the time to graduation.
