These are graduate level courses.  Consult the NEIU Academic Catalog for special admission and registration policies that apply to them.

Prerequisites Will Be Enforced

Please Note: Prerequisites are cumulative; i.e. some prerequisites have prerequisites of their own that must also be successfully completed prior to enrolling in a course.  Students are expected to complete those courses with a "C" or better.  Incomplete grades and "D" grades in prerequisite courses do not constitute successful completion.  Students must not register for 300-level business courses unless they have met all prerequisites and requirements to declare a business major or minor.  This includes a 2.50 GPA in the Foundation Courses. 

All students, including students-at-large, are responsible for complying with the published prerequisites and other registration requirements.  Class registration lists will be monitored and checked.  Students who register for courses for which prerequisites have not been met will be responsible for any financial consequences due to their subsequent necessity to withdraw.  Note that a student may advance register for a course in an upcoming semester while enrolled in a prerequisite course in the current semester, but must complete the prerequisite with a "C" or better to remain registered for the upcoming semester.

Students who have taken prerequisite courses at other institutions must have their transcripts evaluated by the Office of Program Advisement in the College of Business and Management, CBM-159.  If students have not already done so, they should consult with the Program Advisors immediately.

If you have any questions about the registration process or course prerequisites, please make an appointment with the College's advisors by contacting the Office of Program Advisement in Room CBM-159 or call 773-442-6111 or email p-advise@neiu.edu.
