The green area contains courses that are required 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, unless indicated otherwise in the Departmental Recommendations instructions.

If the class is not available during your enrollment appointment, place yourself on the wait list. Do not enroll in both statistics and calculus.

3. If your MPE score places you into MATH 220, MATH 205, or MATH 205+MATH 199, it is strongly recommended that you enroll in ONE of these courses. If the course is not available, you may take math your next semester. Do not enroll in a calculus and statistics course.

4. Enroll in one course from the Cluster One Critical Thinking OR Human Communications requirement section.
