P = Pre-Requisites: Courses that must be completed with an A, B, or C as the final grade and/or are requirements that must be fulfilled prior to the beginning of the course.

C = Co-Requisites: Courses that may be completed during the same term.

Students may not use one general education course to fulfill two requirements for the degree. For example, if a student’s program of study requires six general education courses, the student must take six different general education courses for the degree.
