Remember, if you are a four year student, you must complete two physical education courses and a Swim Test to graduate. The credits do not count towards graduation, but they are required following successful completion of the swim test.

Many courses also meet the College Distribution Requirements for Introductory Life Sciences and other Physical and Life Sciences. For example, Animal Science 1100 fulfills part of the requirement for Introductory Life Science, except at this time for pre-veterinary medicine students.
ANSC 1100, 2120, 2150, 2210, 2400, 3700, and 3920 all fulfill the requirements for Other Life Sciences in the CALS distribution requirement.
