In addition, a 2.5 GPA is required in all accounting courses, and in all College of Business and Economics (including any MCS courses) to graduate as an accounting major.
Note: 1: An accounting major may repeat no more than two accounting courses without special permission from the Accounting Department Exceptions Committee.

- may not repeat an accounting course if the student has received credit for a higher level accounting course for which the course to be repeated is a prerequisite or corequisite. For example, a student who has received credit for ACCOUNT 343 may not repeat ACCOUNT 244, ACCOUNT 249, or ACCOUNT 261.
- for departure from these policies a student may seek special permission from the Accounting Department Exceptions Committee.
