Notes

  1. Students are strongly encouraged to complete their ENG and MTH requirements first.
  2. Students interested in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM)-related transfer degrees should take MTH 161 or higher to fulfill their math requirements. Students pursuing non-STEM majors (i.e. liberal arts, social sciences, communication, etc.) should take MTH 154. Please note that students must consult with an advisor since math requirements of different majors vary by program and transfer institution.
  3. STEM majors should take BIO 101-102 or CHM 111-112.
  4. Students should regularly meet with their faculty advisor and check their advisement report in MyTyler – SIS.
