General Business Minor

Culverhouse College of Commerce and Business, 10 Bidgood Hall
(205) 348-4537

Admission into the minor. Students are expected to formally declare a minor. With the assistance of an advisor in the minor department, students should complete the “Declaration of Minor” form before or during the third year of full-time enrollment.

Grade point average. A 2.0 grade point average in the minor is required for completion of the degree. The minor GPA is calculated based on all courses applicable to the minor that the student has attempted at UA and all work attempted applicable to the minor throughout the entire higher education career.

Minor courses. The minor in business administration requires the successful completion of the following 22 semester hours:

AC 2104
EC 1103
LGS 2003
ST 2603
FI 302, MGT 300, MKT 300, or OM 3009

Upper-level residency. A minimum of 6 hours of 300- or 400-level courses in the minor must be earned on this campus.

Ancillary courses. Non-business majors must complete the course-specific prerequisites for each minor course and must have earned a minimum of 61 semester hours prior to enrolling in the 300- and 400-level courses.

Additional minor requirements. A student in the College of Arts and Sciences who wishes to pursue this minor must have a 2.5 GPA or higher for all college-level work attempted and for all University of Alabama coursework attempted. A student whose grade point average falls below these standards may petition the associate dean for undergraduate programs of the Culverhouse College of Commerce and Business Administration for admission to the business minor if the student’s grade point average for the last 30 hours attempted is 2.5 or higher. A student admitted to a business minor will be permitted to enroll in all courses required for that specific minor even if the student’s grade point average subsequently falls below 2.5 provided all other enrollment requirements are met.

Non-business students must complete the course-specific prerequisites for each minor program course and must have earned credit for a minimum of 60 semester hours at the time they enroll in the 300- or 400-level courses. Non-business majors may earn degree credit for no more than 30 semester hours in C&BA courses (excluding EC 110, EC 111, and ST 260). Failure to comply with these policies will result in administrative disenrollment from C&BA courses. Students are responsible for ensuring that they have met all University, college, major, and minor requirements. However, each student must meet with an advisor in the major department for academic planning and to be cleared for registration each semester. If necessary, students may consult with the minor department academic advisor for questions concerning minor requirements.
