If you have business coursework you have taken or plan to take that is not classified as a direct equivalent to a Texas State business course, you can use this form to request instructions on how to have it evaluated by one of our McCoy College departments for approval to substitute for the Texas State business course required for your degree.

This form is for students pursuing one of the following:

  • A Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.)
