Advisor note:

Business Administration: All students transfer as Pre-Business. All pre-business (pink box) courses must be completed prior to declaring your option. If you transfer in without completing all pre-business courses, you must complete them prior to moving forward in the option (green boxes) courses. Additionally, please note students must complete three more GE courses (GE IB, IC and ID) upon transferring to Fresno State.  

Economics: In order for Economics students to progress in the program successfully, the department recommends two math courses, one being a statistics course. This will also be required for ECON 123. 

Students can use to check the equivalents to their courses for all programs. 

The B.A.S.E advising team can schedule an appointment after the student is admitted and has attended Dog Days New Student Orientation.
