Please keep in mind that it is the student's responsibility to be aware of all courses required for the chosen degree. It is encouraged for students to speak to the Major Advisor at least once a year or more to ensure that the correct courses are taken. Also, students are responsible for knowing which catalog year they are in. This can be confirmed by speaking to the appropriate UAC Advisor.
