Prioritizing your schedule

New transfer students who are admitted as Pre-business should prioritize their schedules based on what they have already completed at their transferring school and UH Bauer College degree plan filing requirements.

Priority 1

UH or Pre-business core classes you have not already completed (Sections 1 and 2 of BBA Degree Program) GENB 3302 Connecting Bauer to Business is a required course to be taken the semester a student transfers to UH as a Pre-business major, and does not have a transfer equivalent.

Transfer equivalencies and substitutions include the following (check the Pre-business Transfer Guide for a list of other transfer course equivalencies, and the Core list for UH or your transfer institution):
BUSI 1301 transfers as GENB 13FS, and substitutes for INTB 3354
BUSI 1305 transfers as MIS 1FOS (if taken prior to Fall 2019) or as MIS 13FS (if taken in Fall 2019 or after), and substitutes for MIS 3300 (the Excel Competency Exam is required of all students)

Priority 2

STAT 3331 is required unless students have transfer credit for BUSI 2305 (UH: GENB 23FS). Finance and Supply Chain Management (SCM) majors must complete STAT 3331 without substitution with a grade of "C" or higher in order to take 4000-level SCM courses.
