*An approved 3-credit EP Foundations Course is acceptable and often substituted for the 6 credits encompassing both COMM 100  and C/IL 102 ; thus allowing the total number of credits required for graduation to be 57.  However, students still have the option to take COMM 100  and C/IL 102  instead of the EP course, and at times the EP Foundations course will not be available; thus the students may need to take COMM 100  and C/IL 102 , which raises the credits to 60.  Consult with your advisors if you have questions.

Graduate students will meet the service-learning requirement by completing major courses that have a service-learning component. They will not be required to complete additional service-learning hours.

Note: Students who complete the A.S. in Counseling and Human Services and wish to continue toward the B.S. in Counseling and Human Services must have attained a 2.5 G.P.A. in the major and a 2.0 in the cognate courses.
