* Core Requirements: Core requirements may be met by taking individual courses; some courses meet more than one Core Goal. If a student takes a course that meets more than one Core Goal, the student earns an additional elective in place of the course allotted for that Goal. Students should confer with their advisor or a counselor before or during the first semester to be certain that the specific electives taken are the best choices for the four-year institution(s) of their choice.
