At least 20 credits of COM courses must be at 300-400 level.  COM 150, 201, 303, 385 and 399 must be completed with a grade of 2.0 or higher.  Students may elect to complete one year of a foreign language instead of sign language (COM 114 and 115).  If so, they would complete two COM electives instead of two Electives in their third year.  If the foreign language option is selected, they would replace one G.E. Category with an Elective.  The term “elective” may not be completely “free” in that this table does not address the university requirement of having 32 credits at the 300/400 level.  

Please note: Student on scholarship or financial aid must be in a minimum of 12 credits per semester
