What are the requirements for enrolling in ACC 4100, ACC 4300 and ACC 5400?

For students enrolling in their first 3000-level accounting course in Fall 2006 or thereafter: in addition to satisfying the necessary pre- and co-requisites, students must have earned a minimum overall GPA of 2.5 in all 3000-level accounting courses taken at Baruch.  A minimum of 8 credits of 3000-level accounting courses must be taken at Baruch.

For students enrolling in their first 3000-level accounting course from Spring 2004 through Summer 2006: in addition to satisfying the necessary pre- and co-requisites, students must have earned a minimum overall GPA of 2.0 (C grade) in each 3000- and 4000-level accounting course taken at Baruch or maintained a 2.5 overall GPA in these courses. This change goes into effect in Spring 2004 for those students enrolling in their first 3000 level course(s) at Baruch.

Students who have taken 3000 level courses prior to Spring 2004 must earn a minimum 2.0 GPA (C average) in all 3000-level accounting courses taken at Baruch (minimum 8 credits) in order to enroll in 4000-level accounting courses and a minimum 2.0 GPA in the required 3000- and 4000-level accounting courses in order to enroll in ACC 5400.
