Deciding Which Course to Take?

You may want to start with a single course, especially if you are balancing work, family, and other responsibilities. But how do you find that course? Here are some tips to help you make your selection.

Choosing a course

  • Undergraduate credits, regardless of how old, may still count; avoid taking courses similar to anything you have already taken.
  • Choose a course at the appropriate level.
  • Pay attention to course prerequisites. If you think you have the equivalent status or background to succeed in the course, or if the course requires a class permission number, contact the appropriate department.

Success comes from making informed decisions. The Office for Students in Transition is prepared to help.

If you are considering a degree

Undergraduate degree:
Contact the Office of Admissions and pursue admission as soon as possible. See the full list of programs and majors for more information and requirements.

Graduate degree:
If you are considering a graduate degree, see Graduate and Professional schools (Medicine) or (Pharmacy) for links to specific admission criteria, procedures, application, etc. This is especially important, as most graduate and professional programs require that a certain number of required credits be completed after admission.
