a MTH 112 can be taken for preparation for MTH 251 if score on ALEKS Math Placement test is 59% or less; MTH 112 is not a required course for the chemistry degree.

b BI 211 is not a requirement for the Forensic Science option but it is an enforced pre-requisite for BI 314 (beginning S07). BI 211, 212, & 213 can be taken in any order. 

c Chemistry majors are strongly encouraged to take the chemistry major's orientation course, "Careers in Chemistry", fall term.  This is 1 cr (P/N)  

d from For Sci elective list, term varies, three electives required out of the list.

e starting fall 2015, BB 494 is renumbered to BB 493 lab.
 If you took BB 494 lab before fall 2015 that will meet this requirement.

The order of courses is suggested. For the track-two core courses (CH, MTH, PH), the order is very fairly critical because of prerequisites and the fact that most CH courses are taught only one term per year.  The options courses (BI, BB, CH, etc.) can be taken at different times than indicated, but one must be concerned with the prerequisites for these courses and many of these courses  are taught only one term per year.

Bacc core courses are not shown in the table but are specified at Baccalaureate Core Requirements
