Important Changes to ACCT 202 Requirement

The College of Business has approved changes in the curriculum directly related to Accounting 202. See below for more information. Please contact your CADE adviser if you have questions. 


What is the change in requirements for students operating under the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 catalogs?

In a brief summary:

  • Accounting 202 is being removed as a required course from the BUSCORE
  • One of the admission requirements for the College of Business has changed so that students will now need to achieve a 2.2 GPA in ACCT 201, ECON 103 and 104, and IS 240

How does the modified Accounting 202 requirement impact major requirements for students operating under the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 catalogs?

  • Accounting and Finance majors and minors: ACCT 202 remains a required course for these majors and minors.
  • Management, Marketing, and Business Administration majors: ACCT 202 will count as elective credits in the major, for all students taking ACCT 202 prior to Spring 2016. Students currently taking ACCT 202 who drop the course will need to take an additional three credits of elective to replace the ACCT 202 credits.
  • Information Systems and International Business majors: The ACCT 202 requirement has been replaced by ACCT 312. Students taking ACCT 202 prior to Spring 2016 will be able to use ACCT 202 as a substitute for ACCT 312. Students currently taking ACCT 202 who drop the course will need to take ACCT 312.
  • HCAD majors: These majors still need to meet all remaining requirements, including 120 credits for graduation.

Is dropping Accounting 202 an option if I am currently enrolled in Accounting 202?

It is recommended that students remain in their current sections of Accounting 202. As you can see above, the credits from Accounting 202 will still help you meet major requirements. Removing a class from your schedule at this
time may delay your time to graduation, and could also impact your financial aid if you receive any. Classes dropped
at this time will result in a grade of "W" on your transcript, and you are not eligible for any type of tuition refund.

If you are a College of Business student who wishes to drop Accounting 202: You do not need to meet with an adviser. Just request an Accounting 202 Withdraw Request Form from the CADE front desk. When you return this completed form, the class will be removed from your schedule.

If you are a student outside the College of Business who wishes to drop Accounting 202: You will need to meet with your adviser and fill out a Change of Registration Request  Form for approval.

REMINDER: November 11 is the last day students may withdraw from a Fall 2015 semester course that meets for the entire term.
