SOME THINGS TO CONSIDER WITH YOUR ADVISOR:
General Education Requirements: The General Education requirements for the B.A. degree differ from those for the
B.S. degrees. Along with additional credits in the cultural enrichment, social awareness,
communication competence, and scientific understanding categories, you must also choose
a world language.
Minor: Another requirement of the B.A. is a minor. There are many options to choose from.
Discuss these with your advisor.
Advising Holds: Each semester an advising hold will be placed on your registration account requiring
you to see your faculty advisor prior to scheduling. Once you and your advisor agree
on your course schedule for the next term, your advisor will lift the hold, allowing
you to register.
