I finally found an actual note on calculators from a professor (Dr. Steve Cole) for an accounting class, and he says...

"CALCULATOR

A financial calculator is required for in-class use and for exams. Your calculator should be able to solve for internal rates of return using uneven cash flows. TI-BAII Plus, HP-17B, HP-19B, and the HP 10-BII are suitable calculators. I will be using a TI- BAII Plus in class. Programmable calculators may not be used for any in-class exams."

So, he actually has students use the BA II, and tells them not to use programmable calcs.

Here's the real link, just in case you don't believe I just cleared up the long-term debate; "BA II Programmable or not?"

So now I can be excited about using my BA II Plus calculator for Principles of Finance, without the background haunting feeling of "what if this is what they call a programmable calculator?"
