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.

Scheduling patterns for courses not taught each semester:  Some major/option courses are offered only fall or spring semester, as listed on guide.
Depending on the placement tests, students may be required to start with MATH 004,021, or 022.  Since MATH 110 is a prerequisite for IST 230, students who are required to start with MATH 004, MATH 021 or 022 must plan their math sequence carefully in order to graduate in four years.
