About BUS 302L

BUS 302L -- Gateway Lab for LDC Exams

Prerequisites for Business 302L:  ACCT 220, 230; BLAW 280; COMP 100; ECON 160, 161; ENGL 205; MATH 103; MATH 140 or SOM 120. (Lower Division Business Core courses).
  You can take BUS 302L concurrently with BUS 302 or prior to taking BUS 302.

In order to complete the Gateway experience, students are required to pass two classes (Bus 302 and Bus 302L).  Business 302L is a one unit self-paced learning class.  There are no regularly scheduled class meetings.  You will take six lower division core concept exams in the following six areas listed below.  The exam schedule will be posted on this website.


To pass the class, students must get a minimum score of 50% (8 out of 16) on each individual exam and a cumulative score of 60% (58 out of 96).   If you do not pass an exam or you wish to increase your score on an exam, you will have two more(total of three) attempts to pass each exam.  If you still fail to pass an exam or get a cumulative score of 58, you must register for the class in the following semester and take the exams all over again.  The pass/fail policy for the class is determined by the faculty and is subject to change.  The course coordinator cannot change the policy unilaterally for any student.


All Exams will be administered in Juniper Hall Room 1105.  You should start preparing for the exams by following the Review Materials link on this web site. You will be taking two exams during each exam session.  The date and time for each exam session will be posted under the Exam Schedule link on this website. Exams typically start during week 4 of the regular semester (week 2 in the summer) and continue till the end of the semester.  Please read the Exam Rules carefully before you show up for an exam.

You will have two opportunities to retake an exam you failed in the first round.   To allow time for all three attempts, you must take the exams when scheduled.  (For example, you cannot take all three attempts during the last week of class).  It is your responsibility to keep a record of your exam scores.
STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES: Students needing extra time or other exam accommodations should contact the instructor at the beginning of the semester in order to arrange for extended time sessions or alternatives. We work closely with the student testing service.
