Incompatible Courses

Certain courses within the Wharton curriculum feature content that is significantly similar or overlapping.  Such courses are considered “incompatible,” and only one such course can be taken.  Course syllabi and concentration course listings will typically indicate incompatible courses. The following courses in the Wharton requirements are incompatible:¹

  • BEPP 2500 and ECON 2100/101
  • BEPP 1000/ECON 010 and ECON 0100/001 or ECON 0200/002
  • FNCE 1010 and ECON 2200/102
  • MATH 1400/104, MATH 1100/110, and MATH 1070
  • MATH 1410/114, MATH 1610/116, and MATH 1510/115
  • STAT 1010 and STAT 1110
  • STAT 1020, STAT 1120, and STAT 4310

If you complete two courses that are incompatible, only the first course that was taken will count toward degree requirements.  The subsequent incompatible course will be dropped from the transcript and neither the grade nor the credit from the second courses will be counted.

It is the student’s responsibility to ensure they are not enrolling in incompatible courses.

1 Starting with Advance Registration in spring 2022, all course numbers are changing from 3 to 4 numbers/characters. In general, if the old course number was <100, the new course number will be the old number prefaced by a zero. If the old course number was >100, the new course number will be the old number with a zero appended to the end, e.g., FNCE 100 becomes FNCE 1000.
