Frequently Asked Questions

What dual enrollment or AP courses would you recommend to a high school junior or senior? If a student has the capacity to take AP or dual enrollment courses in high school, it would be advantageous to select courses that are equivalent to the college’s writing and math requirements as these are prerequisites to many other courses. Business students are asked to complete ENGL 150 or ENGL 151 for their first writing requirement and MATH 104 or MATH 106 for their math requirement (Actuarial science majors will need to take MATH 106). AP examination credit transfer rules can be viewed here. Prior to enrolling in dual enrollment courses, it is recommended that a student check to see how the course will transfer to the university through the Course Equivalency List. If you have plans to take courses beyond writing and math, it is beneficial to contact the Enrollment Management Team at in order to talk about what other classes may be helpful to transfer into the university.
What math should I take my senior year? All College of Business students take at least one calculus-based course at Nebraska. Actuarial science majors take up through Calculus III, while all other business majors are asked to take either Applied Calculus (MATH 104) or Calculus I (MATH). It is recommended students take precalculus or calculus during their senior year in order to prepare for these collegiate math courses.
What constitutes an elective course? An elective course is a course that does not complete a specific degree requirement.
What if I don’t know my major coming into the College of Business? A great place to start is by majoring in business administration!
