Additional Information and Notes


 

♥        Students may choose to use support courses to satisfy general education categories, but may not be required to do so.  Note:  If a course is used to satisfy two or more requirements (for example, a support course and Scientific Reasoning requirement), the credits are counted in only one place.  Using a course to satisfy more than one requirement does not reduce the credit total required for graduation.  

♣        Courses used to satisfy the general education requirements of the university must be taken from a minimum of six different academic disciplines.  First Year Seminar and Level I Written Communications courses are exempt from this restriction.  Courses may not be used to fulfill both major discipline and general education requirements.

#        These Scientific Reasoning General Education Category courses do not have to be a sequence or be from the same discipline.

‡        Level II and Level III Written Communications Courses may be used to satisfy requirements anywhere else in a student’s program of study where they may apply.  The credits are counted only in one area. 

◊         Any MAT course, we recommend MAT 120 , 128 , or 147 .

¶        Any BIO, CHE, CSC, GLS, MAT or PHS course.

†        Because of the overlap in content, students who receive credit for PSY218  will not receive credit for PSY251  or PSY252 , students who receive credit for PSY251  or PSY252  , will not receive credit for PSY218 .

Exceptions in the timing of courses will be made for transfer students. 

Total credits for graduation: 120
