Plan your sequencing of courses carefully

The below degree flowchart and 5 year course rotation shows how important it is to start your math and physics courses early.

Math:  We need you on the path to Calculus, so if you don’t test into Calculus, you might have to take MTH 1110 College Algebra for Calculus (or MTH 1111) and MTH 1120 College Trigonometry, or maybe you test into MTH 1400 Precalculus Mathematics instead.  Math placement scores (ACT, SAT, or Accuplacer) will determine which math you should start in, unless you are a transfer student, in which case your previous course work will help determine this.  The prerequisites listed on this math prerequisite page should help you determine which math you are ready for.

Students on catalog 2022-2023 should use the flow charts below.  Students on 2021-2022 or earlier catalogs should go to the Previous Catalogs page.

Meteorology 5 Year Course Rotation

Some courses follow a 2, 3, or 4-semester rotation, which means it can be important not to miss a course offering when it comes around.  Below is a tentative plan for which semesters we plan to offer which course.  Plans can change based on demand or other factors, so we appreciate your patience if we need to make changes.
