The Sentry School of Business and Economics has a formal admissions policy. You must be admitted to your major to register for some upper-level courses and to graduate with an accounting, business administration and economics major.
If you are not far enough along in your studies to qualify for admission to the major, we highly recommend that you request “pre-major” status by declaring a Sentry School major. This will ensure that you receive specialized advising from the Sentry School Advising Office and regular updates on events and deadlines.
Current Sentry School policy states that you must apply for admission to the major once you complete between 10-18 credits toward the major.
You are encouraged to apply once you have completed at least 10 credits in the major. You can check the online catalog for the recommended courses for each major. Note: this includes all courses that count toward your major including courses from other departments, as well as from the Sentry School of Business and Economics.
If you are a transfer student, you should apply before you complete 18 credits in the Sentry School major OR during your first semester at UWSP.
If you are switching majors within the Sentry School of Business and Economics or adding a second major, you may apply even if you already have over 18 credits in the new major, as long as you have met all other admission requirements.
