The 2016-2017 Program Requirements apply to students admitted in the Fall of 2016.

Students who were admitted prior to Fall of 2016 need to check the Undergraduate Calendar of the year they were admitted.

To make sure that you understand all of your program requirements, it is a useful strategy to become familiar with your academic audit. This document records your academic history and current academic status, as well as outlines outstanding courses and credits that you still need for graduation.
