Additional Notes

Advising Notes

  • GWS, GQ, GA, GH, GS, GN and GHA are codes used to identify General Education requirements.
  • US, IL, and US;IL are codes used to designate courses that satisfy University United States/International Cultures requirements. All students are required to take one IL and one US course before graduation. A course designated as US;IL may be used as a US or an IL, not both.
  • W suffix signifies the course satisfies the University Writing Across the Curriculum requirement.

Program Notes

+4xx Engineering Electives include:

Students must complete a 3-credit course in “United States Cultures (US)” and a 3-credit course in “International Cultures (IL).”

Legend

# Course is an Entrance-to-Major requirement.
