Resources for Perspective Business Students
All students must be admitted to the university in order to be eligible to enroll in credit courses offered through the Mike Cottrell School of Business. Students can declare a business major at the time of application. There is no separate admission process to be admitted to the School of Business, but there are progression requirements in terms of when certain foundation courses must be taken and grades that must be earned.
Undergraduate students transferring to North Georgia must submit transcripts of all previous coursework for evaluation by the Registrar's Office. Once transfer credit is evaluated, the Records Coordinator in the School of Business will determine how the accepted credit matches the requirements for a degree in Business.
Links to Admissions, Financial Aid, and the Registrar are found under the Campus Resources link on the left. A link to how courses from various college and universities transfer to North Georgia is located on the Banner link under Campus Resources. More information about our BBA program is located through the Undergraduate Programs link under Degrees & Programs.
Information for prospective students related to the university is available at Future Students and Cadets.
Resources for Students Pursuing a Business Degree
Students who are admitted to the university and have declared a major in business will be assigned to a faculty advisor within the School of Business. Many of the resources used by the faculty advisors are available to students at the Undergraduate Programs site through the Advising Resources link.
Students who are admitted to the university but have declared a major in some area other than business may request to change to Business through their Banner account. If the student is not in good standing recommendations for coursework to improve the academic standing will be provided and satisfactory progress will need to be shown before the student's major will be changed to Business. Once a student's major is changed to business, the student will be assigned a faculty advisor in Business. Details about requirements for the BBA degree are found on the Undergraduate Programs site and links to many of resources used by faculty advisors are available under the Advising Resources link on the Undergraduate Programs site.
Resources for Students Completing a Minor in Business Administration
Information about the requirements for a Minor in Business are located on the Undergraduate Programs site through the Academic Programs link.
Resources for Students Attempting to Enroll in Business Courses that are a Required Part of a Non-Business Major
The requirements for all programs in the university go through an approval process. Students enrolled in a program that requires a specific course taught through the Business School will be expected to meet all of the requirements for eligibility to enroll in the course that are part of their degree program--including enrollment requirements that are denoted by [R] and [BBA]. In some cases, individual courses have been approved for other majors where the degree requirements do not include some of the requirements related to the [R] and/or [BBA] restrictions (i.e., Art Marketing students are required to take MKTG 3710 Advertising. The listed prerequisites for the course are MKTG 3700 and restricted to students who meet requirements for [BBA]. Art Marketing students are required to take ACCT 2101, ECON 2105, and MKTG 3700; but they are not required to take the other courses required to meet [BBA] restrictions. Since this course has been approved for the Art Marketing major, students must complete the three courses that are part of their major (with a grade of C or higher in each) prior to requesting an over-ride of the system expected prerequisites.)
Resources for Students Wishing to Take Business Courses as Electives
Other students wishing to take courses taught through the School of Business, including students attending North Georgia as a transient student from another university, must meet all of the eligibility requirements for the courses.
