Advising Notes

Marketing majors must complete each of the required marketing classes with a 2.4 (C+) GPA or higher. Students receiving lower than 2.4 in any marketing course cannot proceed without approval from the instructor.

It is the student’s responsibility to examine each course description for details of prerequisite classes. Those prerequisites must be satisfied before the designated class may be taken. Students who wish to take the CIS 1020 Computer Essentials challenge exam are advised to review the information at www.slcc.edu/csis. An 80% or higher is required on each section of the test. Once the exam is passed, a P is posted to the transcript and credit is awarded.

Cooperative Education is the College’s program for recognizing and rewarding new learning associated with study-related employment in a business, industrial or government work environment. Credit earned from MKTG 2000 is applied toward graduation requirements as a marketing elective credit. Contact the Cooperative Education Department at (801) 957-4014. The Department strongly recommends that students enhance their employment opportunities through Cooperative Education as soon as skills permit, to complement the certificate or degree.
