Normally, an ACCT major course may be repeated only once. Students may repeat only a course in which a C+ grade or lower was earned. Only three accounting major courses (3/43000) may be repeated and counted toward the accounting major. All attempts count in the computation of the major, upper-division business and cumulative GPA.

Students should possess such knowledge and skills, if not already possessed, before taking any upper-division accounting major course or during the first quarter of the term during which the course is taken. The department office can provide recommendations on self-study materials to acquire the knowledge and skills.
