NOTES:

  1. BUS144 is required for this program however BUS146 may be used as a substitute for those intending to pursue a four year business related degree given BUS146 transferability into 4-year business programs.
  2. Students who wish to register for the Disney World internship (BUS 285) shall see the Disney Coordinator as soon as possible for advisement.
  3. While this program fulfills the SUNY Hospitality Management transfer path requirements for business and hospitality courses, it does not meet the 30 credits of General Education requirements which are normally completing in the first two years of study.  The Business Adminsitration AS program would meet all the SUNY transfer path requirements for Hospitality Management including GEN ED requirements with the selection of BUS193 and BUS265 as general electives.  Those students interested in transferring to a 4-year institution should seek advisement for selection of program of study and courses.
