First Year / Second Year / Third Year / Fourth Year

First Year

Many of our first-year courses preclude one another which means credit cannot be earned for more than one course. When selecting courses, please be mindful that you cannot enroll or receive credit in more than one of the following courses: FYSM 1004, ENGL 1000 (no longer offered), ENGL 1100, ENGL 1200, ENGL 1300, ENGL 1400, and ENGL 1600.

Students are also limited to enrolling in ENGL 1010 or ENGL 1020 as these courses preclude one another. English Majors in search of a dedicated writing course should take ENGL 1010 instead of ENGL 1020.

Please contact us if you have any questions.
