Note on transfer credit: If you plan to take a course from another institution and transfer credit back to RIT to satisfy a Business program requirement, you must get prior approval from your academic advisor. For any business, elective, math or science course, even once you are given approval by your advisor, please complete the Transfer Credit Prior Approval Form before you take the course(s). The College of Liberal Arts will still pre-approve all COLA classes.
