This is just one possible example of how a student may graduate in eight semesters. Variations on when specific courses are offered, whether a student needs pre-college courses to qualify for college level Math and English, withdrawing from or failing courses, taking summer courses, and/or changing majors all will affect the four year plan. The total number of free electives will depend on the amount of double and triple counting of requirements. See course attributes each semester for courses that meet multiple requirements. Questions about requirements should be directed to the College of Liberal Arts (304-696-2350). Core II and COLA requirements may not be double counted. Forty-eight credit hours (sixteen 3-hour courses) must be at the 300/400 level. Students must earn a C or better in ENG 102 and all foreign language courses.
