Many students need preliminary math, science, and writing courses before enrolling in the program requirements. These courses may increase the total number of program credits. Students should review their math and writing placement before planning out their full program schedules.

NOTE: Curriculum is based on a full time schedule. The courses listed below do not have to be taken in the specified order. However, if you do take them in this order, it will ensure that you have completed all prerequisites for each course. Also, since not every course is offered every semester, it will ensure that you do not have to delay graduation because a certain course is not offered when you decide to take it. Please note that if you attend part-time and/or require developmental courses in Math and/or English, it will take longer to complete your program.
