The course sequence listed is a recommendation to ensure prerequisites and requirements are met. The student needs to ensure that other institutional requirements such as 15 hours per semester for scholarships are also met. Although 60 hours is the minimum needed for the degree, students may end up with more than 60 hours to meet all requirements.
