Communication Skills (10 Credits)
ENGL& 101 requires a 2.0 grade or higher. Second communications course requires a 1.5 or higher grade. Must include a least five credits of English composition. Remaining credits may be used for an additional composition course or designated writing courses or courses in basic speaking skills (e.g. speech, rhetoric, or debate).
To meet current Eastern Washington University requirements, the second English Composition course must be equivalent to Eastern Washington University’s English 201 - College Composition: Analysis, Research, and Documentation.
Quantitative/Symbolic Reasoning Skills (10-15 Credits)
The MATH& 147 and MATH& 148 sequence is recommended for most business transfer students.
Statewide Business DTA states: 5 credits of business calculus (e.g. MATH& 148), calculus I (e.g. MATH& 151) or a higher level math that includes calculus as a prerequisite. The other 5 credits may include finite math or pre-calculus prerequisites for calculus or other courses to prepare for business calculus.
