Additional Notes

- GWS, GHA, GQ, GN, GH, and GS 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. May be combined with GA, GH, or GS.
- W is the code used to designate courses that satisfy University Writing Across the Curriculum requirement.

This is a recommended plan and is not meant to substitute for students meeting with their academic advisers. Any deviations from this plan should be discussed with students’ academic advisers.

Program Notes:
