* Course Needed to Fulfill General Education Requirements of MUW; Students strongly encouraged to complete College Algebra and Lab-based Natural Science before transferring to MUW. Please see General Education Requirements in the University Bulletin.

** Business Majors require a minimum of 124 credit hours to graduate. No more than 62 hours of these hours may be earned at a community college.


Courses used to satisfy requirements in the major cannot be used to satisfy requirements for another major or a business major.
A grade of “C” or higher must be earned in EN 101, EN 102, any math course, Business Core or other COB required course.
Only six hours of Business Electives can be taken below the 300 level.
MIS157 cannot be used as a Business or MIS elective.

This curriculum sheet is a sample and is intended to be a tentative guideline for the order in which courses should be taken to fulfill the requirements of the major.
Courses may be taken out of the suggested order as long as the prerequisite system for each course has been fulfilled.
The course rotation is not fixed and is subject to change.
Courses taken during the summer, transfer courses from other universities and community colleges, and correspondence courses may be used to fulfill the major requirements.
Community college transfer students must earn at least 50 percent of their academic credits from a senior institution, including at least 25 percent of those hours from MUW.  MUW does not award credit for technical or vocational courses except in the B.A.S. program.
The total number or general electives will vary.

The Legal Administration concentration is not approved by the American Bar Association and is not intended to prepare students as paralegals.
