Note: This map assumes student has COMP 150 * placement in Composition and MATH 121 * placement in Mathematics. Students with different placements must work with advisors to adjust the map.

Note: This map is a suggested course sequence. Please consult your academic advisor for alternate sequencing.

Note: Students must complete 30 credits by the end of the first year to be classified as a Sophomore, 60 credits by the end of the second year to be classified as a Junior, and 90 credits by the end of the third year to be classified as a Senior. This may require completion of additional free electives in particular years to supplement the suggested course sequence.33
