Course Schedule

All courses must be taken according to this prescribed course of study. No changes to a student’s course of study shall be instituted unless written permission is given by the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs. The Associate Dean will review the academic progress of each Upper Division student annually and plan the student’s academic program through their anticipated date of graduation. Upper division students may select elective courses, as indicated on their Academic Planning Worksheet. Required courses must be taken as offered, when offered.
