Advanced Expository Writing and Oral Proficiency

See your department office or advisor for details on the specific writing plan and oral communication courses for your major.

NOTES:

General Education Courses may not be taken pass/fail.
Courses that satisfy requirements for the major or minor can also be used to satisfy General Education requirements.
General Education courses can be taken off-campus as long as approval is secured in advance.
Passing scores on college-level competency exams (e.g., Advanced Placements or CLEP) may be used to earn credits and, where appropriate, satisfy General Education requirements.
Waiver exams are given at least twice each year for Computer and Information Literacy (passing the exam satisfies a requirement but earns no credits for the student).  Open to new students only.
Math proficiency must be demonstrated by the student before she or he enrolls in any Math 106/206 course.
Foreign Language requirements can be satisfied by high school study of another language through Level 4; high school study of two other languages (through Level 2 in each); or completion of a 102-level college language course or equivalent.
Only students in Teacher Education or other programs leading to careers where there is likely to be significant contact with the hearing impaired may use ASL to satisfy Foreign Language.
