Intelligence Analysis BS

This worksheet is a planning tool and enrollment guide for use during your enrollment appointment. The first section (in purple) identifies the required major related courses and Cluster One GenEd course you need to enroll in your first semester. The green area contains courses that are recommended for your major but are optional for the first semester. If you do not enroll in the optional courses your first semester you will do so in a later semester. The last section lists GenEd course options you may add to your schedule to create a final schedule of 14-16 credit hours. The worksheet should be saved and printed with your identified selections for use during your enrollment appointment.
