PHIL& 120 and all college level math courses at Edmonds CC currently require completion of Intermediate Algebra (MATH 090) with a grade of 2.0 or higher or placement into college level math. Consult with an advisor early in your program planning to avoid errors in math course selection.

Admission Requirements to a University or College Admission application deadlines vary; students must meet the deadlines for the college they wish to attend. For admission to business as a major, it is critical to note that grade point average requirements vary and admission is competitive. Certain schools may have additional specific requirements that are not prerequisites for admission to the Business major but will have to be completed prior to graduation and/or commencement of business courses. Certain schools may have additional specific requirements for admission to the institution that are not prerequisites specifically identified in the requirements for the Associate in Business DTA Degree.

Contact with advisers from individual schools for institutional requirements is highly recommended. Please see below for some requirements. Students completing this degree who have also met specific institutional grade point average requirements and/or any specific requirements will be regarded as having the minimum preparation for consideration for admission to a business program at the colleges and universities listed in the program description.
