Advisement for Fall 2010

Designed for College of Business Majors who were admitted to SFSU in Fall 2009


Materials you need l.jpg
Materials you Need

  • Print out a copy of your Degree Audit Report (DARS) and have it available while reviewing this presentation. Your DARS can be accessed through your MySFSU account. This report outlines the courses that you have completed at 1) SFSU, 2) any equivalent (DARS) schools, & 3)Advanced Placement (AP) credit earned while in high school. The DARS is formatted to tell you what requirements are still required for your degree from SFSU.


How to use this tutorial l.jpg
How to Use This Tutorial

  • The primary purpose of this tutorial is for you to identify what classes you should take in the Fall 2010 semester.

  • As you go through this tutorial, write down all of the possible choices for requirements you can take in the Fall 2010 semester.


Business general education l.jpg
Business & General Education

  • Business is the most popular major at SFSU. Approximately 20% of the students at SFSU are business majors. The business degree is a 63-unit major plus additional units for course prerequisites. In comparison to other majors at SFSU, the business degree has a high number of specific requirements. When a business class can satisfy a general elective requirement, it is very important to use that course to fulfill this requirement. We will identify those courses throughout this tutorial.


Business classes l.jpg
Business Classes

  • The 63 unit business major consists of 14 core business classes (42 units) and 7 concentration classes (21 units) in your chosen emphasis of business. We offer a number of different concentrations for you to choose from. To review the business curriculum, click on the following link: http://www.sfsu.edu/~bulletin/current/programs/business.htm#400300

  • In general, during their freshman and sophomore years at SFSU, students will typically take general education classes along with lower division major courses. Any course with a Dept ID # of 299 or lower (i.e. ISYS 263) is considered a lower division course. Careful planning is critical as some courses within the major double count as general education requirements.


Hospitality tourism mgmt l.jpg
Hospitality & Tourism Mgmt

  • The Department of Hospitality and Tourism Management resides in the College of Business. While this is a different major from the standard business degree, both degrees share the same lower division business requirements. Similar to Business, HTM has a set of HTM core classes. In addition to these core classes, HTM majors take a set of concentrated courses in a specified field within the hospitality and tourism management field. The HTM curriculum is available through the following link:

    http://cob.sfsu.edu/cob/undergrad/documents/HTMMajorSheet.pdf


Did you know l.jpg
Did You Know…

  • There are degree roadmaps for every business major available on the registrars website. These roadmaps are available at the following link: http://www.sfsu.edu/~admisrec/reg/roadmaps_faq.html

  • The roadmap will provide you with a suggested class schedule on a semester-to-semester basis. If a business major class fulfills a general education requirement, it will recommend a specific course for you to take to complete that general education requirement.


Remediation l.jpg
Remediation

  • Depending on your scores on the ELM (Entry Level Mathematics) & EPT (English Placement Test), you may have had to complete remedial course(s) during your first two semesters at SFSU. Note that all remedial classes must be complete before you can enroll in Fall 2010 courses. If at the conclusion of the Spring 2010 semester, you have unmet remedial coursework, you should meet with an advisor in general education (ADM 211) immediately.


General education l.jpg
General Education

  • General Education requirements are approximately half of the courses that you take for your degree at SFSU.

  • GE classes are categorized in the following requirements: 1st and 2nd year English (followed by JEPET/ENGL 414 or ENG 410/411 for CMS students), US History & Government Requirement, Segment I (Basic Subjects), Segment II (Arts & Sciences) & Segment III (Relationships of Knowledge)


Fall 2010 course planning l.jpg
Fall 2010 Course Planning

  • What classes are you planning on taking in the Fall 2010 semester? By now, you should have some ideas as far as what to take. If not, don’t worry. The next several slides are designed to provide you with a number of suggestions on what you can take.


English requirement l.jpg
English Requirement

  • Let’s begin by starting with your 1st and 2nd Year English Composition requirements. What English class are you currently taking?

  • Use the next slide to determine which English class should be taken next semester.


English requirement con t l.jpg
English Requirement (con’t)

What English class are you currently taking? Use the following sequence:

If ENG 114, then you will take ENG 214 in your 2nd year of college (anytime after earning 24 units)

If ENG 106, then you will take ENG 214 in your 2nd year of college (anytime after earning 24 units)

If you have not taken any English and your EPT score was BELOW 151, then you MUST contact GE Advising at 415.338.1304 for assistance. Your status at SFSU may be in jeopardy.

If you have not taken any English and your EPT score was 151 or higher or you were exempt, then you should take ENG 114 in the Fall 2010 semester.

If you have an AP English score of 3 or above, you do not need to take ENG 114 nor ENG 214.


Us history and government l.jpg
US History and Government

  • Taking two 3-unit courses will satisfy this requirement. Students can essentially take these courses at any point, so unless you have already completed both requirements, this creates 2 additional options for classes to take during the Fall 2010 semester. Use the following link to determine which classes you may choose from to satisfy this requirement:

    http://www.sfsu.edu/~bulletin/current/gradreq.htm

  • Click on the link and scroll towards the bottom of the page.


Us history and gov t con t l.jpg
US History and Gov’t (con’t)

  • Students may satisfy this requirement by taking one course from List A (US History Requirement Courses) and one course from List B (US Government Requirement Courses). All of the courses in List B also satisfy the California State & Local Government Requirement within this segment of general education.


Segment i basic subjects l.jpg
Segment I (Basic Subjects)

Segment I consists of 4 basic subject areas:

  • Oral Communication

  • Written Communication (which is completed by satisfying the University’s English requirements)

  • Critical Thinking

  • Quantitative Reasoning

    You must complete one course in each of these subject areas. A list of all of the Segment I classes is available through the following link: http://www.sfsu.edu/~bulletin/current/ge.htm#1298


Oral communication l.jpg
Oral Communication

  • Native Speakers: Oral Communication is a part of Segment I. Native speakers of English take COMM 150. Did you take COMM 150 yet? If not, add it to your Fall 2010 class schedule.

  • Non-Native Speakers: ENG 210 meets this requirement, but you need to consult with your current English teacher to see if you are ready for this course.


Critical thinking l.jpg
Critical Thinking

  • Critical Thinking is a part of Segment I. If you have not taken a course to satisfy this subject area, you could add one for the Fall 2010 semester. A list of all courses that satisfy this subject area is available at the following link:

    http://www.sfsu.edu/~bulletin/current/ge.htm#1298


Quantitative reasoning l.jpg
Quantitative Reasoning

  • DS 110 or Math 110 (Business Calculus) is the course that business majors use to fulfill the University quantitative reasoning (QR) requirement. This course is a prerequisite for a number of the business courses that you will take in your sophomore, junior and senior year. Since this class is required of all business majors and also fulfills the University QR requirement, students should not take a different class in the list of available choices.


Quantitative reasoning con t l.jpg
Quantitative Reasoning (con’t)

What Math class are you currently taking? Use the following sequence:

If MATH 60, you will need to take MATH 70 in the summer. You will not be able to register for Fall 2010 until you complete MATH 70 or an equivalent course at another institution.

If MATH 70, you should add DS or MATH 110 to your Fall 2010 class schedule.

If DS or MATH 110, you should add DS 212 (Business Statistics) to your Fall 2010 class schedule. DS 212 is a part of your major core courses.

If your ELM score was 50 or higher and you have not taken DS or MATH 110, you should add either of these courses to your FALL 2010 class schedule.

If your ELM score was below 50 and you did NOT take any of the above classes, you must contact 415.338.1304 (GE Advising) for assistance! Your status at SFSU may be in jeopardy!

If you have an AP Calculus score of 3 or above, you do not need to take DS/MATH 110.


Segment ii arts sciences l.jpg
Segment II (Arts & Sciences)

Students must complete a minimum of 27 units in Segment II. Segment II consists of the following:

  • Physical & Biological Sciences Area (9 units)

  • Behavioral & Social Sciences Area (9 units)

  • Humanities and Creative Arts Area (9 units)

    A list of all of the Segment II classes is available through the following link: http://www.sfsu.edu/~bulletin/current/ge.htm#4174

    Students taking these classes during their Freshman or Sophomore year should take lower division courses (100-299 level classes) to satisfy these requirements.


Segment ii con t l.jpg
Segment II (con’t)

  • In each Segment II Area, students must complete a minimum of 9 units.

  • In each Segment II Area (PBS, BSS & HCA), students must select courses from at least 2 different departments. That is, at least 3 units of the nine-unit minimum must have a different departmental prefix.

  • Within Segment II, students must complete one course that is designated as fulfilling the American Ethnic and Racial Minorities (AERM) requirement and one course that is designated as fulfilling the Lifelong Development (LLD) requirement.


Physical biological science l.jpg
Physical & Biological Science

  • Students must complete a minimum of 9 units within the Physical & Biological Sciences Area. A list of courses to choose from is available at the following link: http://www.sfsu.edu/~bulletin/current/ge.htm#4174

  • Students must complete one course from Category A (3 units minimum), one course from Category B (3 units minimum) and one course from Category A, B, or C (3 units minimum)

  • At least one course designated L/F (laboratory or fieldwork) must be selected.

  • Pay close attention as some science courses may have prerequisites.


Behavioral and social sciences l.jpg
Behavioral and Social Sciences

  • Students must complete a minimum of 9 units within the Behavioral & Social Sciences Area. A list of courses to choose from is available at the following link: http://www.sfsu.edu/~bulletin/current/ge.htm#4174

  • 2 of the 3 classes chosen within this segment should be ECON 100 (Macroeconomics) & ECON 101 (Microeconomics) as both classes appear within the business major and will double-count as meeting a major and general education requirement. Both classes should be taken within your first two years at SFSU and neither course has any prerequisites.

  • Your 3rd BSS class cannot have an ECON prefix, but can be selected amongst any of the BSS area categories.


Humanities and creative arts l.jpg
Humanities and Creative Arts

  • Students must complete a minimum of 9 units within the Humanities and Creative Arts Area. A list of courses to choose from is available at the following link: http://www.sfsu.edu/~bulletin/current/ge.htm#4174

  • No more than 6 of the minimum 9 units may have the same departmental prefix.

  • Ideally, select courses that also satisfy the University AERM and LLD requirements.

  • Pay close attention as some HCA courses may have prerequisites.


Additional options l.jpg
Additional Options

  • In addition to general education courses (& business courses that meet general education requirements), students may begin to take lower division business courses that reside in the business major (as long as the prerequisites are met). Students will typically take the following 4 courses at some point during their sophomore year: ISYS 263, ACCT 100, ACCT 101, DS 212. HTM majors generally take HTM 110 during their freshman or sophomore year.


Ds 212 l.jpg
DS 212

  • DS 212 (Business Statistics) is a lower division, major core class that most business majors will take during their sophomore year. The prerequisite to this class successful completion of DS or MATH 110 with a C- or better (or AP credit in calculus). If you have an AP Statistics score of 3 or above, you do not need to take DS 212.


Isys 263 l.jpg
ISYS 263

  • ISYS 263 (Introduction to Information Systems) is a prerequisite class required for all business majors. The class is a prerequisite to a number of courses that business students will take during their Junior/Senior year. Before business majors can enroll in this course, they must first successfully complete the University QR requirement (DS 110 for business majors). Students are highly suggested to take this course in their sophomore year. If you have already completed DS/MATH 110, you can add this class to your list of choices for the Fall 2010 semester.


Acct 100 l.jpg
ACCT 100

  • ACCT 100 (Principles of Financial Accounting) is a lower division, major core class that most business majors will take during their sophomore year. Please note that the class is quantitatively based. The prerequisite to this class is a score of 50 or higher on the ELM or successful completion of MATH 70 with a C- or better.


Acct 101 l.jpg
ACCT 101

  • ACCT 101 (Principles of Managerial Accounting) is a lower division, major core class that most business majors will take during their sophomore year. Please note that the class is quantitatively based. The prerequisite to this class is successful completion of ACCT 100 with a C- or better.


Htm 110 only for htm majors l.jpg
HTM 110 (only for HTM Majors)

  • HTM 110 (Introduction to Hospitality & Tourism Management) is a course that Hospitality and Tourism Management majors typically take in their 1st year at SFSU (Business majors do not take this class). This course has no prerequisites. If you are an HTM major and you have not taken this class, you should add it to your list of options for the Fall 2010 semester.


Segment iii l.jpg
Segment III

  • Students cannot begin to take Segment III courses at SFSU until they have completed all of their Segment I requirements and have earned 30 or more units of credit within Segment I & II.

  • Most students will not begin to take these courses until the 2nd semester of their sophomore year or during their junior/senior year.

  • A list of all Segment III classes and requirements is available at the following link: http://www.sfsu.edu/~bulletin/current/ge2.htm


At this point l.jpg
At this point…

  • You should have a number of classes to choose from when you register for Fall 2010 classes.

  • All current SFSU students will have 2 different times to register for Fall 2010 classes. Early Priority Registration will run May 3-14, 2010. During this period, students will register for up to 8 units. Final Priority Registration will run July 26-August 6, 2010. During this period, students will register for up to 16 units.


Early vs final priority registration l.jpg
Early vs. Final Priority Registration

  • In general, when deciding which classes to choose during Early Priority Registration, we suggest the following method:

  • Select courses that open doors for ensuing courses (i.e. DS/MATH 110 & ISYS 263 are prerequisites to a large number of courses within the business major).

  • Select courses that double count towards your GE requirements and the business major (i.e. DS/MATH 110, ECON 100, ECON 101).

  • Do not waitlist with your Early Priority Registration Date. This will count towards your 8 allotted units. Being on a waitlist does not guarantee you a spot in the class.


College of business advising l.jpg
College of Business Advising

  • The College of Business offers two types of advising.

  • Faculty Advisors: Each department (e.g. Accounting, Marketing, Management, etc.) has designated specific faculty to serve as advisors. Students are always welcome to meet with these faculty members on a walk-in basis. A list of faculty office hours and locations is available outside of BUS 112 and on the CoB Website at the following address: http://cob.sfsu.edu/cob/directory/directory.cfm

  • CoB Student Service Center Advisors: The CoBSSC is located in BUS 112. Our office has two full-time advisors. After they have reviewed this tutorial, students may meet with an advisor on a walk-in basis. Because of priority summer registration, we will not be able to meet with students for fall 2010 registration questions until April 19. A schedule of our advising times for fall registration questions is posted outside of our office (see “Frequently Asked Questions” Bulletin Board outside of BUS 112).


Recap l.jpg
Recap

  • Before you meet with an advisor, review this tutorial and write down the courses you intend on taking in the Fall 2010 semester.

  • Bring a copy of your intended class schedule with you when meeting with an advisor.

  • Please write down your questions prior to meeting with an advisor.
