Students have an opportunity each year to select their next year's course of study. In planning a course of study, students should evaluate their future plans and objectives. Students must complete the following minimum requirements for graduation:
There are 124 credits required for graduation. General academic courses are worth 5 credits, and lab sciences are worth 6 credits.
The required courses listed above do not add up to 124 credits. After the required classes are fulfilled, the student has the opportunity to take elective courses in order to acquire the needed credits. Most students start with one elective in freshman year and add electives in later years as they complete required courses. Electives are available in academic areas as well as in fine arts and technology.
In UC’s schedule, students must always be registered for 7 classes. In freshman year all students take a 2.5 credit writing course and in sophomore year students take a 2.5 credit math essentials course.
