Year 1:
BSAD 111 should be taken the first semester and no later than the second semester.
BSAD 150 should be taken the second semester and does not count towards the 120 hours required for graduation.
Enrollment in MATH 106 is based on results on the Math Placement Exam.
Electives - These can be courses for a minor, major or for personal interest.
ACCT 201 - Can be taken upon completion of 14 hours of UNL credit and MATH 104 or MATH 106 with a C or better and a 2.5 GPA.
ECON 211 or ECON 212 - Can be taken upon completion of 12 credit hours. They are not sequential.
ACE 4, 5, 7, and 9 (non-business requirements) and Electives can be taken in any order.

Year 2:
Sophomore standing = completion of 27 credit hours.
MATH 208 should be completed before STAT 380. Otherwise, courses are interchangeable throughout year 2 as long as prerequisites are met.
A 2.5 GPA is required to enroll in ACCT 201, ACCT 202, and ECON 215 (Actuarial Science majors will take STAT 380 in place of ECON 215). Students must maintain a 2.5 cumulative GPA throughout the program.
If 1st and 2nd year required course options are completed, most Year 3 options can be taken as long as prerequisites are met.

Year 3:
Junior standing = completion of 53 credit hours.
Most courses are interchangeable throughout remaining time at UNL as long as prerequisites are met.
It is strongly recommended that you incorporate required prerequisite courses for your major in the 1st semester of the third year or sooner if prerequisites are met.
MATH 314 is strongly recommended.

Year 4:
Senior standing = completion of 88 credit hours.
MNGT 475 - Prerequisites must be completed to enroll with preference given to seniors graduating the same semester as enrollment.
BSAD 98 - Senior assessment must be completed in your final semester.
A 2.5 GPA is required to apply for graduation.
Residency rule - 30 out of last 36 credit hours must be taken at UNL.
All Actuarial Science majors must take at least 28 hours of Actuarial Science courses and cannot take them as pass/no pass.

PLEASE NOTE

This document represents a sample 4-year plan for degree completion with this major. Actual course selection and sequence may vary and should be discussed individually with your college or department academic adviser. Advisers also can help you plan other experiences to enrich your undergraduate education such as internships, education abroad, undergraduate research, learning communities, and service learning and community-based learning.
