Advising Notes

  • † ECON 2105 and ECON 2106 must be used to satisfy Area F requirements.
  • Since most four year business programs require students to take calculus (MATH 1501) at some point, we recommend that students take MATH 1111 as their Area A math class or better yet, MATH 1301 or MATH 1501. If they take MATH 1111, then we recommend MATH 1113 as their third Area D class and MATH 1501 as their Area B class.
  • Unless students have a math SAT above 500 (or equivalent ACT) we recommend that they not take Accounting before they take Math 1111 or higher; new freshmen tend to struggle in Accounting, even if they have had accounting in high school.
  • ECON 2105 and ECON 2106 must be used to satisfy Area F requirements.
  • We recommend Math 1111 or higher before students take either economics class.
  • Students who started at Gordon State College before Fall, 2007, should consult their advisor regarding Area C requirements.
