Undergraduate Programs Overview

The College of Business offers four-year undergraduate majors leading to a Bachelor of Science degree.

  • Students are required to complete the course requirements of one of the majors in the college. Students follow the published curricula for the major program of study from the semester/year of entrance in the College of Business to graduation, provided enrollment at NDSU has not been discontinued for more than one year. Students who change their major program of study are subject to meeting the curricular requirements in effect at the time the new major is declared.
  • Students enter the College of Business as a pre-major student.

  • Students must be accepted into the major prior to the completion of the last 30 credits in required 300-400 level College of Business courses.
  • Graduation from the College of Business requires students to also earn a grade of 'C' or better in all degree required courses (including all major required courses, business elective requirements, and additional 300-400 level CoB electives or breadth electives).
  • Students in the College of Business are responsible for monitoring their individual progress toward degree completion. Full time academic advisors and faculty advisors are available to provide guidance and answer questions.
