The College of Business has made it easier for You!
Goodbye MGMT…. Hello ACC, ISM, MKG, FIN, and BUSM!
Beginning with Summer 2013 registration, the College of Business changed course subject codes for many Undergraduate courses. Now it is easier to find the specific course you want. No more hunting through all the MGMT courses to find that Introduction to Business class (now BUSM 10100), Investments class (now FIN 44300), Project Management (now ISM 48700), Financial Accounting (now ACC 20000), or Principles of Marketing class (now MKG 22400)! Student transcripts will also be easier to interpret and will clearly show the courses taken by subject area.
Subject codes for Graduate classes remain unchanged—graduate students should still use the MGMT subject code for graduate course registrations.
We brought out five new course subject codes to join ECON, ENTR, CIS, and OBHR which are not changing.
New Subject Codes
• ACC = for Accounting classes
• FIN = for Finance classes
• ISM = for Information Systems classes
• MKG = for Marketing classes
• BUSM = for other SOM courses not in any specific major discipline.
Continuing Subject Codes
• ECON is still for Economics classes
• ENTR is still for Entrepreneurship classes
• OBHR is still for Organizational Behavior & Human Resources classes
• CIS is still for Computer Information Systems classes
When did this take effect?
Beginning with Summer 2013 and Fall 2013 registration.
Does this change my graduation requirements?
No, not at all
How will I know what to look for in the schedule and catalog? How will I know what an old course equals in the new codes?
To help you find the course you’re looking for visit http://webs.purduecal.edu/business/subject-codes-have-changed/ to see Table 1-old to new codes and Table 2-by new subject codes.
What will happen to courses that I have finished already?
The subject codes will stay as originally listed.
What if I’m taking a course with a new code that requires a pre-requisite course that I took with an old code?
No problem! We have already programmed both sets of codes into the registration system.
Will my GPA be adjusted if I repeat a class?
Yes, regardless of what code was used originally.
Will I be able to see transfer credits in the new codes?
If the transfer credits are new, yes, but if old, they will stay as they were originally.
Will Degree Works show the old or new codes?
Current students’ records will show both, depending on when the course was taken. New students’ records will show only new codes.
Will my transcripts reflect the old codes or the new codes?
They will reflect the codes used when the course was originally taken. If the course was taken spring 2013 or earlier, it will stay the same. If taken summer 2013 or later, the new codes will be listed.
