All courses within the School of Business & Economics must be completed with a grade of C- or better. A student may repeat only one of the three following courses, one time: ECON 101, Principles of Macroeconomics; ECON 102, Principles of Microeconomics; and ACCT 305, Introductory Accounting. Other courses in the department may be repeated only once. Students must maintain a 2.3 grade-point average within the School of Business and Economics.

A total of six courses in mathematics, computer science, and statistics are required for all programs in the department. MATH 111, Calculus for Social-Life Sciences I, is required for all students. Specific majors such as economics, and finance have additional math/computer science requirements. See the advising coordinator for details. All mathematics and computer science courses must be passed with at least a C-.

All students must pass a senior year comprehensive assessment administered twice a year, independently of any course. Students take this examination in their last year in residence at CUA, by which time they must have completed all core courses plus all required courses for their major.

The school also offers minor programs in the areas of accounting, economics, finance, international business, management, marketing, and sports management. These programs are only open to nonmajors, with the exception of the sports management concentration which is available to majors.

Students majoring in accounting who intend eventually to take the Certified Public Accounting (CPA) examination should be aware that the educational and experience requirements of boards of accountancy vary from state to state. In some states, the number of credit hours needed to sit for the exam exceeds the number of credit hours that a student would typically earn in an undergraduate program. It is the student's responsibility to determine the requirements that must be met in his or her state to sit for the examination and to request changes in his or her program so as best to meet those requirements. The school maintains a current directory of the requirements for all states, territories, and the District of Columbia and can assist the student in meeting the requirements.
