Full-time students are allowed to take a maximum of 5.0 credits from September to April (the FW session): 2.5 credits in the fall term (FA) and 2.5 credits in the winter term (WI). Some courses are worth a full credit ("Y"= 1.0 credit), while others are worth a half credit ("H" = 0.5 credit). For example, HIST 1500Y is worth 1.0 credit and spans the entire fall/winter (FW) session, while PHIL 1000H is worth 0.5 credit and is offered in the fall term (FA) and spans one term only.
First Year Business Administration students:
Required for BBA or ADMN Joint Major: ADMN 1000H, ADMN 1221H, ECON 1010H, and ECON 1020H
The rest of your course selection is flexible and consists of elective credits. Consider taking the required introductory courses in a few programs that you find interesting to open multiple pathways for the future.
For those considering a Specialization in Accounting or Finance, you will want to enroll in both ADMN 1000H, ADMN 1221H and one of ECON in the Fall term and ADMN 2010H, an additional second year ADMN required course and one of the ECON in the Winter term of first year. This will then leave space in the upper years to timetable the appropriate accounting or finance courses. It is also suggested you take COIS 1010H and COIS 1620H in first year.
