- MATH 220 may be substituted. MATH 220 is appropriate for students with no background in calculus. 4 of 5 credit hours count towards the degree.
- External transfer students take ENG 300.
- 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). A course for free elective is taken the other semester. Composition I guidelines can be found at Degree and General Education Requirements under Written Communication Requirement.
- General education: Students must complete the Campus General Education requirements including the campus general education language requirement. One of the SBS courses must be an introductory economics course (ECON 102 or ECON 103). NPRE 481 will satisfy a technical elective requirement in the Professional Concentration Area and the Campus General Education Advanced Composition requirement.
- CS 124 may be taken instead of CS 101 for students interested in pursuing the CS minor.
- Additional coursework, subject to the Grainger College of Engineering restrictions to Free Electives, so that there are at least 128 credit hours earned toward the degree.
- TAM 211 may be taken instead of TAM 210. The extra hour may be applied towards the Professional Concentration Area electives.
- PHYS 325 may be taken instead of TAM 212 for students pursuing the PHYS minor.
