Business Administration (BBA)

Choosing First Year Courses

Establishing the best first year schedule helps you set the foundation for a successful Acadia experience. To help with this, your department has recommended the courses you should register for in your first year. To make the process even easier for you, many departments will pre-register you for your required courses. Most programs allow you to choose and self-register for at least one elective in your first year. Academic advising is available at any stage should you need it.
