Minimum hours required for Lower Division­63.

Upper Division Curriculum. Junior and senior level business and economics courses may be taken upon admission to the Upper Division of the college and attainment of junior status. The Upper Division curriculum consists to 24 hours of Upper Division Core (BLAW 3391, ECO 3311, FIN 3320, ISQS 3344, MGT 3370, 3373, 4380, and MKT 3350), plus major courses and electives. The specific requirements for each major are indicated on the following pages.

Accounting Major. The primary objective of the undergraduate accounting program is to prepare students for professional accounting positions at the entry level in public accounting, government, industry, and other organizations in the public and private sectors. It also prepares accounting students for the graduate course work in the 150 hour program. Thus, the focus of the program is on high quality and thorough professional education in accounting, including preparation of students to take and successfully complete professional certification examinations, e.g., the CPA and CMA examinations. After September 1, 1997, a person must have a baccalaureate degree and 150 semester hours of college credit to become a Certified Public Accountant in Texas. Until January 1, 2000, a candidate may sit for the CPA examination after completing a baccalaureate degree (or completing the equivalent in a 150 hour program) but before completion of 150 hours. However, the candidate cannot be certified until the 150-hour requirement is met. After January 1, 2000, a candidate must have completed the 150 hours to sit for the examination. The 150 hour program is recommended for students who intend to become Certified Public Accountants. A grade of A or B is required in ACCT 3304 for students desiring to obtain a B.B.A. degree with a major in accounting and to take selected junior and senior accounting courses. In addition, a 2.7 GPA on all courses attempted at Texas Tech is prerequisite for ACCT 3305 and 3306. Instead of a Lower Division elective, PSY 1300 must be taken.

The Bachelor of Business Administration degree will be awarded to all students who fulfill the following minimum requirements:

·Satisfactory completion of all courses as outlined for each major.

·A minimum Texas Tech adjusted cumulative 2.0 GPA.

·A minimum Texas Tech adjusted cumulative 2.0 GPA on all College of Business Administration courses.

·Completion of the last 30 hours following official admission into the College of Business Administration.

Application for Graduation. At least one year before the proposed graduation date, application for the degree must be made through the Undergraduate Program Office. Graduation is attained by fulfilling the requirements for a B.B.A. degree using an eligible catalog edition. It is the student's responsibility to fulfill all catalog requirements.

Admission of Transfer Students

Students planning to take their first two years of work at a junior or community college should follow our lower division degree plan. A maximum of 66 hours can be accepted provided none of the courses are vocational, career, or upper division courses.

Courses that are acceptable from a four-year institution are our lower division requirements and free electives plus the following Upper Division Core: FIN 3320, ISQS 3344, MGT 3370, MKT 3350, BLAW 3391, and ECO 3311. The last 30 hours must be taken while registered in the College of Business Administration.

Students transferring from any institution must have a cumulative 2.0 GPA or higher on all hours taken at any college or university. Transfer credit is not used in the calculation of a student's Texas Tech grade point average. The College of Business Administration has the authority for determining which transfer courses apply toward a B.B.A. degree program. Credit hours completed after September 1, 1992, with a grade of D earned at another accredited institution in academic nonvocational courses will be accepted for transfer provided that a grade of D in the equivalent course at Texas Tech will satisfy a requirement for the B.B.A. degree. Only free electives may be accepted on a pass-fail basis. Official transcripts from all institutions are needed before the acceptance of transfer credit. Former Texas Tech business students returning as transfer students must have a 2.0 cumulative GPA on all work attempted at the other institution.

Students requesting permission to transfer from another college at Texas Tech must have a 2.0 adjusted cumulative GPA or higher and must bring a copy of all transcripts to the Undergraduate Program Office prior to being officially admitted to the College of Business Administration. A student is officially admitted to the college by a formal transfer completed by the Undergraduate Program Office. Upper division business and economics courses will be used in the degree program if (1) the student had a cumulative 2.0 GPA when the courses were taken and (2) the B.B.A. lower division core had been completed.

The last 30 hours prior to graduation must be taken while enrolled in the College of Business Administration.

General Standards and Requirements

Accreditation. The American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business prescribes that at least 50 percent of the total hours in the undergraduate program be in General Education courses. A.A.C.S.B prescribes that at least 50 percent of the business credit hours required for the business degree be earned at the institution awarding the degree.

Catalog Selection. Students will use the catalog issued for the year in which they were first officially admitted to the College of Business Administration or a more recent catalog if approved. However, if they later transfer to another institution or another college at Texas Tech, they will use the catalog in effect when they are readmitted to the College of Business Administration. For these purposes, a catalog expires after seven years.

Course Load. The normal course load for a semester is 15 to 16 hours. The maximum load for a semester is 18 hours (7 hours for a summer term). Correspondence courses are included in a student's course load. The maximum course load for students on probation is 12 hours.

Course Prerequisites. Prerequisites are governed by the catalog in effect when the course is taken.

Nondegree Students. A nondegree form must be signed in the Undergraduate Program Office before registration. The nondegree status will continue until a written request for a change has been approved by the Undergraduate Program Office. All prerequisites and academic regulations based on GPA, such as probation and suspension, apply to nondegree students. Courses taken while in the nondegree status may not be used as part of a degree program.

Pass-Fail. Only free electives are eligible for the pass-fail option. No free elective in a student's major area may be taken pass-fail (i.e., accounting course for an accounting major) even if major courses have been completed, nor can a course be taken pass-fail that could be used for a group A or B requirement unless that group has been satisfactorily completed. Pass-fail hours are excluded in determining eligibility for the Dean's Honor List and President's Honor Roll.

Probation and Suspension. See the section of the catalog entitled "Academic Status" concerning probation and suspension policies. The College of Business Administration will not use credit obtained during a Texas Tech suspension period toward the B.B.A. degree.

Summer Work. Course work to be taken at other institutions must be approved by a COBA undergraduate program counselor. Credit from other institutions is not calculated into the student's Texas Tech GPA.

Services

Counseling. Each undergraduate student in the college is provided with an academic counselor located in the Undergraduate Program Office on the second floor of the BA building. COBA counselors have the expertise and capability to provide the necessary guidance during each student's degree program and are aided by a computerized degree audit to ensure accuracy. Lower division students are guided by counselors in the Undergraduate Program Office, and students are encouraged to visit with faculty advisors concerning their chosen major. The freshman course "Business Enterprise" assists students in career planning, and aptitude tests are available in the University Counseling Center.

Upper division students should maintain contact with a COBA counselor in the Undergraduate Program Office concerning degree requirements and with faculty advisors for help in selecting courses to achieve career objectives.
