Students requiring developmental course work based on low entrance exam scores (ACT, SAT, ASSET, COMPASS) may not be able to complete this program of study in eight (8) semesters.  Developmental courses do not count toward total degree hours.  Students having completed college level courses prior to enrollment will be assisted by their advisor in making appropriate substitutions.    In most cases, general education courses may be interchanged between semesters.    A minimum of 45 hours of upper division credit (3000-4000 level) is required for this degree.  Mandatory state and institutional assessment exams will be required during your degree program.  Failure to participate in required assessments may delay graduation.
