Advising and Registration
SBE Minors Take Note
Business Administration, Economics, and
Entrepreneurship minors must email Elizabeth Gordon (firstname.lastname@example.org)
as soon as possible, to request that major restrictions be
lifted from any upper division courses they plan on taking for
Not Admitted Yet?
Upper division Business Administration,
Economics, and Accounting courses are restricted to SBE Majors
only. If you would like to register for one of those courses,
you’ll need to email Elizabeth Gordon (email@example.com)
with that request and include your student ID number. She will
calculate your cumulative and SBE GPAs to make sure you are on
track for admission (2.85 or better). If you meet the minimum,
she will allow you to register for them.
1123 or Approved Spreadsheet Waiver Still a Requirement for all
Many SBE intended majors continue to
overlook the SBE Spreadsheet Competency requirement. There
are many ways to satisfy this requirement, but students who are
otherwise ready to register for MAT 2700 Statistics for
Business and Economics or ACCT 2362 Managerial
Economics will be prevented from registering until this
"competency requirement" is satisfied.
See the full policy here. Most students satisfy
this requirement by completing the 1-credit CSC 1123
Spreadsheets course. Eight sections of CSC 1123 were
scheduled in 2009-10 and two of these sections are available

“Having, Losing and Gaining”
The Associated Undergraduate Students of Business and Economics
In honor of the late
Dr. Lisa Klein Surdyk, AUSBE is hosting a fundraiser to
support her family. AUSBE is collecting donations to go towards
gift certificates to restaurants, movies, and other family
activities. If you would like to contribute to this cause, there
is a collection being taken at the SBE front desk (2nd floor,
McKenna Hall) and at all AUSBE events. With your help we
can reach our goal of $200 to help them through this difficult
time. Thank you for your continued prayers for her family!
Our next Donuts with the Dean,
Thursday, March 4th, from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. in the McKenna
Conference Room. Join Dean Van Duzer for donuts and
Week = Cookie week. Come take a break between

Feel free to
contact any of the AUSBE officers if you have suggestions,
comments, questions, topics for Donuts with the Dean, etc.,
as we are here to serve you!
Look for many
exciting events coming Spring quarter!
