Business Administration

ACADEMIC MAP (Effective Summer 2023 and after)

*Please Note: Face-to-face/in-person instruction of this program is ONLY available at the Panama City, FL campus. This program is NOT available via Online/Distance Learning.*

This map is a term-by-term sample course schedule. The milestones listed to the right of each term are designed to keep you on course to graduate in four years. The Sample Schedule serves as a general guideline to help you build a full schedule each term. The General Education and Elective courses must be selected to satisfy all area and diversity requirements unless your program meets these requirements with major courses. Milestones are courses and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major. Missing milestones will result in one of two types of map registration stops. The first level (Degree Map Off-track) is placed following grade posting if the student has missed a milestone (course and/or GPA) for the first time in the major. If a student is in non-compliance with milestones for two (2) consecutive semesters (excluding summers), a Major Change Required stop is placed on the student's registration.

The business administration program is a limited access program and is only available at the Panama City Campus. To be admitted to the business administration major, a student must meet the admission requirements for the business administration program at the Panama City Campus. Students must have earned the required grade point average on all prior college level work that is established each year for admission and must have completed the lower level prerequisite courses (or equivalents) required for admission with a final grade of “C minus” or better in each course. All prerequisite courses must be completed prior to admission.

Students should compete the diversity requirements through their General Education coursework.
