*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.

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.
