Bachelor's Core Curriculum

Core Curriculum: BS 66+ Hour Degrees, 0-14 Credits of Transfer

Academic Department

Core Pathways for BS degrees over 66 hours (exclusive of BSN)

This core sequence is for students who have transfer credit and/or examination credit totaling 0-14 credit hours based on first semester enrolling at UST and are enrolled in a BS degree track that is greater than 66 hours for the degree. This includes:

  1. All the engineering degree plans
  2. Biochemistry
  3. Computational Biology

All of these are externally accredited and thus have limited flexibility about their size.

Transfer Courses/test credit do not substitute for courses in the core; instead they determine which core pathway a student is taking, count towards the overall credits necessary to graduate and may count for specific courses in a major or minor.

Switching from a high credit BS major

Students who change majors from one of the high credit BS degrees indicated above must complete the ordinary core pathway associated with their transfer tier. However, students with senior standing (90 hours and above) will be required only to complete the 21 hour tier.

Requirements for Transfers w/o Natural Science/Math and/or Social/Behavioral Sciences

Students whose transfer credit or degree plan (major or minor) does not include at least three credits of Natural Science/Mathematics and/or Social/Behavioral Sciences are also required to take MATHC 2301 and POSCC 2301, respectively.
