Online Pre-Business Curriculum

Curriculum Sequence for the Online Pre-Business

The Eller Online Undergraduate program allows students to work at their own pace. If you want to complete coursework at full-time status, then you would take two courses every seven weeks (4 classes or 12-14 units per semester). If you prefer part-time enrollment options then you will be coached to take complimentary courses at your own pace. Your pre-business advisor/success coach will provide advising, study strategies and academic support, and registration assistance along the way.

The following pre-business foundation courses are available for self-registration through your UAccess Student Center:

General Education Requirements

Eller Online students must also complete UA General Education requirements to earn their degree.

Please work with your Pre-Business Advisor/Success Coach to review your particular coursework and plan for these additional requirements, if needed.
