Total: 124 - 127 Credits

1 Includes community based learning component.

2 The selection of a First Year Seminar is likely to fulfill requirements both for the First Year Seminar and a General Education Requirement.  Thus, the First Year Seminar will not add to the total credits for the semester.  Talk with your advisor if you have any questions.

*An approved 3-credit EP Foundations Course is acceptable and often substituted for the 6 credits encompassing both COMM 100  and C/IL 102/102L , thus allowing the total number of credits required for graduation to be 124.  Students always have the option to take COMM 100  and C/IL 102/102L  instead of the EP course, which may be necessary if an EP Foundations course is not available. This option raises the credits to 127.  Consult with your advisor if you have questions.
