A prerequisite is a course (or learning experiences or class level) that must be taken or completed prior to enrolling in a given class.
For example: MGM 280 Principles of Management has the prerequisites of ENG 101 (English 101), either ECO 101 (Principles of Economics) or both ECO 110 (Macroeconomics) and ECO 111 (Microeconomics). This means that you must have completed or be in the process of completing these listed prerequisite courses to enroll in MGM 280.
Your unofficial transcript is located on Banner (student menu > student records menu). Your transcript will tell you how many hours you have registered for and completed each semester. You are responsible for each course for which you register.
Your transcript will be the official record of your academic performance at SUNY Plattsburgh and will go with you into your future. Your transcript will state your major (which will not be listed on your diploma) also give you cumulative values of credits earned and your GPA. You must earn a minimum of 120 credits, complete all degree requirements, and have a cumulative and major GPA of 2.0 to graduate from SUNY Plattsburgh.

- Business Exit Exam — BUS 489
All SBE students majoring in accounting, business, business administration, entrepreneurship, finance, global supply chain management, international business, management, management information systems and/or marketing must complete the Business Exit Exam.
All majors in the SBE (except economics and hospitality management) at SUNY Plattsburgh must register for and pass the Business Exit Exam (BUS 489) in order to graduate. NOTE: If you passed MGM 490 prior to spring 2011 at SUNY Plattsburgh, you have already met this requirement. The Business Exit Exam (BEE) focuses on the core business knowledge areas and serves as a direct assessment of student learning in the SBE. There is a Brightspace review site that all registered students will gain access to prior to the exam. Topic areas on the review site correlate with the questions on the exam.
