CSU and College of Lake County

Transfer Guide for
Accounting, Finance, Management, and Marketing
 
The College of Business offers a B.S. in Business and Administration, with options in Accounting, Finance, Marketing, Management and Management Information Systems. This transfer guide is intended for students who wish to complete a pre-professional curriculum at a community college in order to receive the Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree.Beginning in fall 2008, students who have completed an associates degree will be considered to have completed general education requirements. The courses listed below will transfer for students with an A.A.S. degree, but some students may need to complete specific general education courses at CSU and credit for professional courses will be granted only after successfully completing a proficiency exam.
 
 
The guide shows the courses which should be selected from general education offerings to meet program requirements at Chicago State University, and is consistent with major recommendations from the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI).
 
All transfer students must complete Chicago State University diagnostic examinations for English composition, reading, and math. Study guides for the composition exam can be found by clicking here, and sample questions for the reading and math exams can be found by clicking here.
