  • Change of Status from Pre-Business to Business Administration

  • Change of Major: Declaring the Business Minor

See the specific instructions below for details about each of these forms.

Change of Status from Pre-Business to Business Administration:

*IMPORTANT - SUBMIT YOUR CHANGE OF STATUS FORM ELECTRONICALLY (THERE IS NO MORE "BLUE FORM")

Students completing Pre-Business requirements in Fall 2018 or Winter 2019

  1. Download and save the Change of Status form to your computer from the Undergraduate Forms folder in Google Drive. Save using your last name, first name - example: Smith, Bob.
  2. Open the form you just saved and fill it out completely.
  3. If you completed or are currently taking classes to complete the Pre-Business requirements somewhere other than SSU, please attach a copy/screenshot of your grades and/or enrollment in these classes.  This will be submitted as a separate document - example: Smith, Bob_Transcript1
  4. Email the form and any transcripts and/or proof of enrollment to busadmin@sonoma.edu

Completing steps 1-4 above will allow you to register for BUS 316, 319, 344, 360, & 370, but will not allow you to register for concentration courses. BUS 320 is required for students entering SSU in Fall 2018 and beyond. Students who entered SSU prior to Fall 2018 do not need to take BUS 320.

In order to be allowed to register for concentration courses you must:

  • Take a screenshot of your final grades for the Fall 2018 or Winter 2019 semester (Grades post shortly after the semester or winter session ends.)
  • Email the screenshot to busadmin@sonoma.edu.
    Emailing the screen shot of your grades (you must receive a grade of C or better in each course) will initiate the change from Pre-Business to Business Administration, which allows you to register for concentration courses.
