* Effective July 1, 2018, we temporarily stopped taking new applications to the Business Administration and Accounting & Finance distance programs to allow time for preparation of new and improved distance offerings for the 2019-20 academic year. Changes include; reducing the range of specializations available from seven to four choices, namely:  Accounting, Financial Services, Marketing or Human Resources Management; and reducing the number of credits required to graduate from 135 to 120. Current students have a maximum of 5 years from their start date to complete the program.
