Notes to Degree Plan

BIBLE CREDIT:  Traditional students must complete BI 1073, 1083, 1093, and one of BI 3213, 3433 or 4213.   Students should take the courses in consecutive order unless approved by their advisor. 

FOREIGN LANGUAGE:  8 hours required for BA degree

MATH/SCIENCE:  15 hours of math/science required for BS degree

INTEGRATED STUDIES:  Two of the four Explorations classes MUST be integrated (LULT, LUMS, LULT, LUHI).

Due to requirements in certain majors, particular Explorations classes may be required in that major.  Please consult your advisor regarding the appropriate Exploration classes to take.

PREQUISITE TEST SCORES:  Make sure that you meet any prerequisite test scores (particularly in math) to take a particular class.

 

Failure to do the following may result in a delay of graduation.

1.    Plan schedules carefully, so as to fulfill all pre-requisites for the next semester’s courses.  
Waivers for pre-requisite courses will be granted only under extreme circumstances.

2.    Check with your academic advisor before changing the sequence of courses since some are not offered every semester.

3.    Check your account early to allow time to eliminate any hold that might prevent pre-registration.

4.    Pre-register early to secure classes needed for graduation requirements.

This is a suggested guide to course scheduling and does not replace the University Catalog as the official listing of program requirements.  It is meant to serve as a basic guide to class selection and does not guarantee graduation in four years.  A student's timing and progress through their degree program may be affected by various factors (hours brought into the program from other sources, class availability in any given semester, etc.).
