Class Registration Instructions

Class of 2022

Congratulations if you are graduating in May! You will not be required to meet with your academic advisor for registration. However, we would love to see you before graduation. Feel free to schedule a coffee chat or meeting in late April/ early May.

If you are not graduating in May 2022 please make an appointment with your academic advisor.

Just a few reminders:

  • Summer Intent to Graduate is due by August 1, 2022
  • Winter Intent to Graduate is due by October 1, 2022
Class of 2023

As you’re gearing up for the two remaining semesters at Olin, many of your required classes should be completed by now. If possible, plan to complete any remaining core requirements next semester. You should also be working towards completing courses for your specific majors/ minors. Review your requirements and talk with your advisor to ensure that these can and will be met by your graduation date.

As you’re gearing up for the two remaining semesters at Olin, you’ll complete any remaining core requirements and upper-level non-business distributions, but the main focus of your senior year will be on coursework in your major(s).

While the BSBA advising team carefully checks your degree audit to ensure that you meet all necessary requirements for graduation, we expect that you are aware of the remaining requirements. It is possible to adjust your senior year schedule, but you should be thoughtful and intentional about it to ensure you meet all graduation requirements. When in doubt, please consult with your academic advisor.

Accounting Majors:

You should enroll in ACCT 464: Auditing and either ACCT 466: Financial Statement Analysis or ACCT 467: Income Tax Fundamentals this fall. You could take all three, but this might depend on your specific career plans.   

MACC Students:

If you are admitted to the MACC program, you should discuss your Accounting selections with your MACC advisor. If you are thinking about sitting for the CPA examination, you should confer with your MACC advisor to determine the specific requirements needed for this exam. The process for registration for both graduate and undergraduate courses will be sent out shortly to each MSP student.

Entrepreneurship Majors:

You should have completed MGT 421 and MGT 424 by now, leaving you with the task of completing electives for the major.

Economics and Strategy Majors:

You should have completed MEC 370 and MEC 470 by now leaving you to take MEC 471 this fall. MEC 400K will be offered in the spring and MEC 471 is the prerequisite for this course. If you haven’t taken MEC 470, then you can take both MEC 470 and MEC 471 this fall.

Finance Majors:

If you have not taken FIN 441 and/or FIN 448, then you MUST enroll in these classes. FIN 441 and 448 is a pre-requisite for several of the spring finance electives. If you have taken FIN 441 and FIN 448, you should take FIN 451. If you have completed the finance core coursework consider taking your finance elective. If you have not taken ACCT 3610: Intermediate Accounting 1, then you are encouraged to take this course.

Healthcare Management Majors:

To complete this major, you should enroll in MEC 320 (MGT 320) and MEC 321 (MGT 321) this fall as neither course will be offered in the spring.  You can select an elective as well.

Marketing Majors:

If you have not taken MKT 378 yet, consider taking it this fall rather than waiting to take it next spring. Also, consider taking a Group A elective if you have not yet.

Choose your fall marketing electives carefully as electives are typically only offered once a year in fall or spring.

Organization and Strategic Management Majors:

You should be working the specific categories for this major. Work with your advisor to ensure that you will meet the specific requirements for this major.

Operations and Supply Chain Management Majors:

Hopefully, you have already declared your major[s] or plan to declare them in your advising meeting. Your junior year course work should include additional coursework in your major, the remaining core classes, and upper-level distribution requirements. Please review your degree audit and consult with your advisor to be sure you’re on track.

Entrepreneurship Majors:

To start this major, you should enroll in MGT 421: Introduction to Entrepreneurship or MGT 460L: Introduction to Social Entrepreneurship this fall. Either course will count towards your first requirement for this major. Additionally, you could enroll in one of the Entrepreneurship electives offered this fall.

Assuming you have taken MEC 370, you should enroll in MEC 470 and/or 471 this fall. 

Finance Majors:
