UIS fall sceneFoundation entrance requirements

All departments in the College of Business and Management require foundation knowledge in accounting, economics, advanced mathematics, and statistics.

If a student enters UIS without these foundation courses, the courses can be completed during the first and second semester concurrent with other coursework.

However, foundation courses are prerequisites for most of the college and program core.

STUDENTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO MEET WITH AnĀ ACADEMIC ADVISER in order to determine what courses they can enroll in while finishing their foundation coursework.
