  2. Review the Programs of Study and make a note of the courses required to complete your desired program. If you know what field you are interested in but not sure what program, we will help start you in the right direction.  If you are unsure what program you want, an advisor in Enrollment Services can help you.
  3. Preview the class schedule to get a general idea of the classes available to you.
