Don’t do Credit/No Credit
As a reminder, all of the cognate, core, and major courses taken at GVSU that are applied toward your business degree must be taken for a grade. This does not apply to transfer courses including CLEP, Study Abroad, and AP. This includes your cognate courses of CIS 150, STA 215, and if you choose PHI 103, MTH 122, or MTH 125 for the quantitative requirement.

Seidman’s Repeat Policy
Students may repeat up to three different business and economics courses in their undergraduate career, but no single business of economics course can be repeated more than once. Exceptions are made only with approval of the Associate Dean for Seidman Student Academic Services.

Business Minor (for non-business majors)
If you are a non-business major with a business minor, you will need to request a Registration Override (in Banner) for any upper-level business or economic course you want to add. Be sure to request overrides in advance to be prepared for your registration day.

Apply to graduate the semester prior to completing requirements
Please submit your graduation application to the Registrar’s Office via myBanner. Select Student, Student Records, and Apply to Graduate. When selecting the term of graduation, students should select the semester in which their degree requirements will be complete.
