14 Core courses and requirements are specific to the year consistent with the curricular guide you are following. The preceding core requirements correspond with the 2009-10 academic year.

15 A Few Things to Remember: Must earn minimum of a 2.0 in each general education core course When choosing your core courses, please be aware that the selection of courses available to meet the core is based on the date of your curriculum guide Some majors will require a specific course that might meet a core requirement.

For questions, please consult an academic advisor or counselor at 517.483.1904 or
