Transition to the New Core

This table shows typical student schedules as the curriculum transitions to the new Core requirements through spring 2023. These requirements affect students who entered the college for their first years in fall 2021 and later. The number in parentheses following each course represents the number of credits for that class. Beginning in fall 2022, Chem 24 will be a required co-requisite to Chem 23 (that is, taken at the same time), and Bio 23 will be a required co-requisite to Bio 52. Beginning with the class entering in fall 2021, students will be required to take one of their PE credits in the first four semesters at the college.
