Class of 2016

The college will be implementing a new curriculum beginning in the Fall 2014.  At the time of this implementation, students on track to be part of the graduating class of 2016 will have completed 20 courses, with two years remaining until graduation.

For students in this class, the biggest change during their junior and senior years will be the number of courses they will be required to take.  Within the new curriculum a student's typical course load is 4 courses per semester, which is one less than the 5 course per semester in the previous curriculum. 

To accommodate for the reduction in the number of courses taken during their junior and senior years, several changes in graduation requirements have been adopted by the college for the graduating class of 2016.  Details of these changes for the different degrees are provided below.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The revised graduation requirements for all the degrees listed below apply only to students who are on schedule to graduate with their class. The requirements for all other students (e.g., transfer students, non-traditional students, and students who fall behind due to multiple course withdrawals, a leave of absence or other reasons) will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis by the Dean's Office.
