Applications for the general business degree plan (major) may be made by the semester during which the student will have completed at least 45 credit hours of the business administration pre-professions program (BAPP) requirements.

A student will become eligible for graduation with a bachelor of science in business administration degree upon fulfilling the above requirements and completing 126 credit hours of coursework. Fifty-four of these hours must be in the BAPP program, 30 hours in the business core, and the remaining 42 hours must be earned as specified by the student's major. Students must earn a minimum 2.5 grade point average in the business core courses in order to graduate.
All transfer coursework approved by the K-State Admissions Office, with a grade of C or better, will be reviewed by the College of Business Administration (CBA) Office of Student Services for equivalency within the business curriculum and is subject to final approval. (Transfer coursework carrying a grade of D will not be accepted toward a student's business degree requirements.)
Final approval of transfer courses for use within an individual's business degree plan is determined by the appropriate department head, in conjunction with the CBA Office of Student Services and the Associate Dean and Director of Undergraduate Studies. In general, upper-level (300+) business* courses will only be considered for approval if the coursework has been completed at an AACSB-accredited institution.
*Business courses are defined as those carrying a prefix of ACCTG, ENTRP, FINAN, GENBA, MANGT, MIS or MKTG.
