The business curriculum for college graduates is available to those who hold baccalaureate degrees from regionally accredited institutions in any recognized field of study other than business and who have grade point averages of 2.5 or higher for all college-level coursework attempted and 2.5 or higher for all University of Alabama coursework attempted. A student whose grade point average falls below these standards may petition the assistant dean for undergraduate programs for admission if the student's grade point average is 2.5 or higher for the last 30 hours of coursework attempted. Curriculum VII leads to the bachelor of science in commerce and business administration degree, following completion of the undergraduate work outlined below. Curriculum VII is for the college graduate who wants a professional degree in commerce and business administration on the undergraduate level. At least 31 semester hours of study in residence in the College of Commerce and Business Administration are required.

In addition to the 2.5 grade point average requirement, the prerequisites for Curriculum VII include completion of the requirements for the Alabama Statewide General Studies Core Curriculum in natural science, fine arts, literature and humanities, history and social and behavioral sciences and the University of Alabama Core Curriculum requirement in computer science or foreign language. Students must complete AC 210, CS 102, EC 110 and EC 111, LGS 200, MATH 121, and ST 260 (or their equivalents) with grades of "C-" or higher. Any of this coursework completed in pursuit of the first bachelor's degree will apply to the second degree under Curriculum VII. These prerequisites must be completed before Curriculum VII students can enroll in 300- or 400-level C&BA courses. Failure to complete the prerequisites will result in administrative disenrollment from 300- or 400-level C&BA courses. The course requirements of Curriculum VII follow. Advisor: Canterbury
