  2. External transfers take ENG 300.
  3. RHET 105 (or an alternative Composition I sequence) is taken either in the first or second semester of the first year, according to the student's UIN (Spring if UIN is Odd). General Education elective is taken the other semester. Composition I guidelines can be found at Degree and General Education Requirements under Written Communication Requirement. 
  4. Recommended, optional 1 credit course, MSE 183 Freshman Materials Laboratory. Credit hour counts toward free electives.
  5. General Education: Students must complete the Campus General Education requirements including the campus general education language requirement. MSE 307 and MSE 308 will satisfy technical core requirements and the Campus General Education Advanced Composition requirement.
  6. Students who take CHEM 232 for 4 hours can count the extra hour as free elective.
  7. Students in the Biomaterials Area may substitute STAT 400 for IE 300 with permission from the department.
