1The General Education (Gen. Ed.) Electives for SS and AH may be taken in any order. Consult the General Education website for the list of approved courses. One Ethics course (E) and one Diversity course (D) need to be included among the total of six AH and SS courses.

2Any UML course xxxx.1010 and above will fulfill the Free Elective requirement (exception Math courses must be above the level of Calculus I). Additional Biology lecture and laboratory courses (with BIOL prefix) may be taken to fulfill the Free Elective requirement. Courses with LIFE prefix cannot be used.

Restriction on off-campus study:

Be advised that any course taken at another institution must be formally approved prior to enrollment. See the catalog policy for details.
