Required courses

Admitted students should enroll into the summer sessions’ Business Minor courses to help ensure completion of the Business Minor before graduation.

Business Minor students may fulfill the minor’s Fundamentals of Accounting Core Course Requirement with either our campus’s ACCY 200 course OR the sequence for both the ACCY 201 and ACCY 202 courses.

The ACCY 200 course OR the ACCY 201 and ACCY 202 courses are the prerequisite for the FIN 221 course. ACCY 200 OR ACCY 201 and ACCY 202 must first be completed before enrollment into FIN 221.

Business Minor students will enroll into the FIN 221 course only in the spring semesters.

Some Business Minor courses are available online through the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Please find more information through our website.
