(ECO 201 Macroeconomics, ACC 122 Accounting Principles II, and MKT 201 Principles of Marketing are also requirements of the program, but are not pre-admission requirements. They may, however be prerequisites to later courses so should be taken as soon as possible.):

      NOTE: MTH 121 College Algebra and MTH 122 Trigonometry are pre-requisites for MTH 141. Do not take only MTH 121 at NMC as WMU does not offer a stand-alone Trig class and you will have to take Pre-Calculus at WMU (thus repeating the content of MTH 121).

If you have questions, call the College of Business (269) 387-5075 or visit 250 North Halll.

Completion of the BASIC requirements as listed at NMC will fulfill most of the general requirements at WMU. WMU requires two additional General Education courses at the 3000–4000 level to be taken at WMU plus an upper level writing requirement (Proficiency #2 at WMU). Upon request at the NMC Records Office, a statement will be placed on your transcript, "MICHIGAN TRANSFER AGREEMENT (MTA) SATISFIED"
