♦ With the appropriate mathematical background students may elect to take MAT MAT 1710. ≈Students with appropriate background may opt for PHY 1610/1620 or PHY 1710/2710.
° Students who plan to transfer to Ferris State University must take this course to ensure being accepted into the fifth semester of the welding engineering technology program at Ferris State University. If a student enters the program requiring both ENG 0410 and ENG 0430, delay the CSC 1310, 1320 and 1330 modules until later in the program, possibly during summer school.
CSC 1310-1330 are each 5-week courses that together represent a time commitment of 15 weeks (equivalent to a full-credit hour course)
INT 1520 is a one-credit hour course that is given during the first 5 weeks. CSC 1570 is a two-credit hour course that begins in week 6, immediately following the end of INT 1520.
MAT 1220 and MAT 1590 have a prerequisite of MAT 0600 or two years of high school algebra/ geometry or placement exam.
To complete the program in two years, students must begin in the fall semester at the appropriate levels of math and physics.
First time, full-time students are also required to take INT 1520: Student Success Seminar.
Some courses have prerequisites. Students should check course descriptions to be sure course prerequisites have been met.
Not all courses are offered on all campuses every semester. The master schedule for each semester lists current offerings. See the Course Descriptions section for frequency of offerings.
Physical education is optional but may be required by some transfer colleges.
