EBIZ: Butler/Emporia Students to Business
Welcome to the EBIZ/Emporia Students to Business website!
ESU provides a Business program in the Wichita Area!
Course offerings, degree completion, and other requirements for students in the 2+2 program at BCC are the same as required of all ESU students.
EBIZ Program Information
ESU maintains a program of quality and high standards. Because of this, students must meet specific requirements prior to entry into the Business program. Students who hold an Associate of Arts degree or numerous college credits will continue on to receive a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Emporia State University.
The program requires 124 hours for degree completion.
Admission to all Bachelor of Science in Business degree programs is contingent on fulfillment of the following requirements:
1. Have a cumulative grade point average of 2.35 or higher
2. Completion of 51 credit hours
3. Completion of the following courses or their accredited transfer equivalency

It is strongly recommended that the following courses be completed prior to admission to the School of Business. If not completed prior to admission, the student must enroll in these courses the first semester after admission.

BC104 – Principles of Economics II
IS213 – Management Information Systems (offered through ESU only)
All students who enroll in ESU business courses must have junior standing before enrolling in ESU courses numbered 300 and above.
The Business Administration programs provides the student with a broad preparation in business including accounting, business law, economics, finance, management, marketing, and quantitative methods. This major produces a business generalist with the flexibility to qualify for entry-level employment in corporations, small businesses, non-profit institutions, and government.

Admission to ESU:
Students must be admitted to Emporia State University to qualify for admission to the EBIZ (Emporia Business) Program. Students may apply for ESU admission by contacting the Admissions Office at 1-877-468-6378, or by visiting the website at http://www.emporia.edu/admissions/.
Paper copies of application forms are available upon request. Along with the application for admission, students must send an application and registration fee of $40. Transfer students will also need to include official transcripts. Once a student has been admitted to ESU, they will receive an acceptance letter, and may then enroll in classes. Transfer students will also receive an official transcript analysis form that will tell them which general education classes have been accepted and applied toward their ESU Business Administration program.
Financial Aid is available from both BCC for the General Education portion of the program and from ESU for the Business Administration of the program. Students who are taking classes from both BCC and ESU at the same time may qualify for joint financial aid. Students need to contact both financial aid offices to find out more information.
Butler Community College and ESU have a long-standing articulation agreement that specifies which BCC courses will transfer as general education requirements to the ESU program. The transfer agreement/course equivalency list is available at the following website: http://www.emporia.edu/regist/com/ Questions about the General Education classes or about an Associate’s Degree from BCC need to be directed to the BCC counselors.
Under the new lock-step Cohort Program, dual enrollment is not encouraged. Students should try to complete BCC classes (or at least within 6 hours) before entering the ESU program. If a student has a couple of classes left when entering the ESU program, the student may apply for financial aid to be split between the two schools. ESU and BCC work cooperatively to assist the student when this situation occurs.
Second Degree and Transfer Students:
When space is available, students may transfer into the program from another university or community college and do not have to complete their associates degree from BCC. If transfer students still need to take a few general education classes, they may do so at BCC or at another community college.
