Course sequence

Download Plan of Study worksheet.

Each program has a course sequence or a proper order in which to take classes. It is important that students take their classes following the course sequences provided by the department because foundational or prerequisite classes contain information that utilized in the upper level courses.

Since our students are coming from many different community colleges and technical backgrounds they transfer with a different amount of credits. It is difficult to prescribe a semester-by-semester plan that would fit each individual student's situation, so instead priority lists are used.

Each list contains a group of classes that are required to be completed before registering for classes in the subsequent lists. This helps students progress through the program, while building on their foundational skills.

Web Sites for Course Equivalency:

All courses required are not on these priority lists. General education and communication courses are left off these lists. Students can use the general education and communication classes to help balance their schedules, but these are outside of the technical/program of study area. A student should first try to schedule classes at the priority level they are at, and then opt to take general education classes.
