Students enrolling in economics and business courses must demonstrate the following quantitative prerequisites:
BIS majors acquire over $8000 worth of industry-standard software for only $400 per year. This software is used for major courses and includes all updates and new releases as they become available throughout the year. The first time you register for any computer science course (except COMP 101 and COMP/BUSN 382), your student account will be charged $400. You will have the entire semester to pay this fee.
To meet the requirements for the software you will be using, your machine should have the following minimum requirements:
Processor: At least 1.6 GHz PC Memory: Minimum of 2 GB Disk Space: Minimum of 100GB free space. (Empty HD expected)
The Department presumes that students will have taken the applicable prerequisite(s) when registering for courses. Prerequisites will be waived when the Department Chair deems that a student’s background or other extenuating circumstances render the applicable prerequisite(s) unnecessary. This approval must be obtained prior to registration for class.
Appropriate transfer work will meet required coursework, but in some cases you may be asked to provide additional information. The transfer policy pertaining to the management core courses which is described in the section on the management major also applies to the BIS major.
Please note that you may not meet computer science requirements with courses taken more than eight years prior to application.
