5 15 to Finish Most classes are 3 units There are some exceptions (ex. ENG 100J: 5 units) Aim to complete 15 units/5 classes every semester Check Financial Aid award letter to determine number of credits needed for aid to disburse A minimum of 120 units are required for College of Business majors. 15 units 2 semesters 30 units per academic year 4 years 120 units

6 Sample Schedules Pg. 25 of your Advising Manual Suggestions: Enroll in 15 credits Please note ENG 100J and Math 126 are 5 credit classes (two credits more than traditional math and English classes). Talk to an Advisor before enrolling in more than the recommended 15 credits. Be Flexible Stick to the Pre-Business checklist Balance University Core Curriculum and Pre-Business classes

7 Helpful Definitions MyNEVADA may not allow you to enroll in certain classes because they require prerequisites or co-requisites: PREREQUISITE: a class that must be completed prior to enrolling in a subsequent class Ex. IS 101 is a prerequisite for ECON 261R CO-REQUISITE: a course that is required to be taken simultaneously with another course Ex. MATH 126 is a co-requisite for ECON 102 Although not all upper division courses have prerequisites, freshmen are encouraged to take 100 & 200 level classes Upper division ( level classes) business classes have a similar prerequisite: Students must be declared business majors or minors before they can enroll You may have a class that has a LEC and a DIS section to the course. (E.g. Math 126): LEC: is the large class where the professor lectures and presents all the relevant information for the day. DIS: is a small group section to the course where you discuss the information presented in the LEC section, do quizzes, turn in homework, ask questions, etc. Attendance is mandatory for both components of the course.
