Business & Economics

In the College of Business and Economics, first-year students will generally take 14 to 17 credits in the first semester. Full-time status requires a minimum of 12 credits per semester, with a maximum of 17 credits in your first semester. 

Please go to the First-Year Student portal to access critical CBE Pre-Registration materials for students in the BS in Business and Economics degree program and review all materials carefully before online registration opens in July.  Materials will be posted by mid-June.

Note that all first-year students in the BS Business and Economics degree program must enroll in BUS 001: Introduction to Business in a Global Environment (3 credits) and ECO 001: Principles of Economics (4 credits).  BS in Business and Economics students who are not bringing in Calculus AP credit will also enroll in either MATH 000 - Preparation for Calculus (2 credits), MATH 081 - Calculus with Business Applications (4 credits), or MATH 021 - Calculus I (4 credits) depending on their math-related background.  As a BS in Business and Economics first-year student, you will receive an email from your academic advisor in June with a math placement recommendation. 

Please be sure to check your Lehigh email at least twice a week during the summer to keep abreast of important messages from the CBE Undergraduate Programs Office. 

If you have any general academic questions as you review your CBE Pre-Registration Materials, you can send an email to cbeadvising@lehigh.edu, and a member of our academic advising team will reply as quickly as possible.  If you wish to schedule an appointment with your academic advisor, please refer to the directions posted to the First-Year Portal.

Our academic advisors will also be available for drop-in advising for BS in Business and Economics students during the afternoon of CBE College Convocation on Friday, August 25, 2017.   H.A.W.K.S. Peer Mentors will also be available to assist with questions you may have as you prepare for your first week of classes at Lehigh.

If you are a first-year student who is not currently in the College of Business and Economics’ BS in Business and Economics degree program and wish to pursue a change into the College of Business and Economics, please refer to the College Change Advising page of the CBE Undergraduate Programs web site.
