Q. When should I take Econ 102?
Junior BBAs who have not yet completed ECON 102 must complete it by the end of Winter 2016 at the latest. The timing of this course will vary from student to student, so you are encouraged to consult with your Academic Advisor
as you plan. Please note:
the transfer credit policy for this course has recently been updated, so that students are now eligible to transfer approved ECON 102 credit from another institution during spring/summer 2015. Check with your academic advisor and be sure to submit the transfer credit pre-evaluation transfer form
prior to enrolling in any spring/summer classes, to ensure the course is conforming to all transfer credit polices. Online courses are not permitted.

Q. I want to study or work outside of Ross during my Junior winter semester. What do I need to do?
All BBA students are required to enroll for at least 12 credit hours during Fall and Winter semesters while they are in the program. If you are studying abroad through a Ross global exchange program or another program through the University of Michigan (LSA/CGIS, etc), you will be enrolled through the university and considered in residence. If you are pursuing alternate learning opportunities through a non-U of M provider, you will need to petition the Ross Undergraduate Academic Standards Committee for approval of a Leave of Absence. More information can be found here

before submitting a petition.
Q. How will different winter opportunities affect my degree plan?
A. That will depend on what options you end up pursuing. You should speak with your academic advisor to go over the potential ramifications of various opportunities on your individual degree plan. Regardless of where you study during your junior winter semester, you are responsible for making sure that you are on track to complete all of your degree requirements in an appropriate timeline.
