If a student is not a business major, we will assist in registering for business classes after a student has completed their application with their Degree Plan signed by their Academic Advisor and submitted to our Class Waitlist.

Please note: There are no guarantees of placement in your requested quarter but we will make sure students can enroll in the courses by the time they need to begin the Sales Program Curriculum by Fall of their graduating (Senior) year.
