  2. A minimum cumulative grade-point average of 2.00.
  3. Completion of the CALS Core Competencies.

  5. The University requires two courses addressing diversity for all incoming first-year and incoming transfer students. At least one course must be completed from the category one requirements. These diversity credits will satisfy 6 of the 12 social science and humanities requirements for the college.

The applicability of courses to specific areas is based on content and not departmental label. Applicability of courses to fulfill requirements rests with the student's advisor and, if necessary, concurrence of the Dean of the College.
