Qualifying status:

Applicants who ultimately fail to satisfy the specific English and/or math entrance requirements may be granted admission to and be allowed to remain enrolled in the business program as qualifying students subject to the availability of space after the admission and registration of qualified applicants. 

Qualifying students may concurrently register in three first-year business courses, any three for which they satisfy the prerequisites. 

Qualifying first-year business students will not be considered continuing students. 

They will, therefore, be allowed to continue in the program after the qualifying year only if all outstanding course entrance requirements have been completed.
