ALSO NOTE:

  1. Students should take only one law class – COMS 403 or COMS 455 or JOUR 480 – in their major, major/minor or double major.  (For example, a JOUR major or minor may take JOUR 480 to fulfill the requirement, then use a different course – not COMS 403 or COMS 455, just a COMS elective – in their COMS major or minor.)
  2. COMS majors and minors need a cumulative 2.0 average in their COMS course work. As long as that 2.0 is maintained, students may receive a 'D' or 'F'. Classes, in which low grades are received, may be repeated to attain the needed 2.0 average. ( JOUR majors and minors need a 'C' or better in every JOUR course ).
  3. Bachelor of Science Degree requirements have been broadened to include any College of Liberal Arts and Sciences option. (And BSA/OMIS 259 subs for CSCI 210; BSA/OMIS/UBUS 223 subs for STAT 301.)
  4. All substitutions require official forms to be filed the semester a student is to graduate.
