Special Note from the panel:  The panel recommends that students take College Algebra before enrolling in BUS 901.  In addition, the panel also strongly recommends that students take IAI MATH M1 906: Finite Mathematics or IAI MATH M1 900-1 College-level Calculus or IAI MAT M1-900B Business Calculus before they transfer, especially if they intend to transfer as a Business Major (or related field) at a 4 year institution.
