New students must meet with the DGS prior to the beginning of the Fall semester. Continuing students must meet with the DGS during pre-registration. All students must meet again with her during add/drop period if changes to their registration are necessary, as students cannot change their course selection without prior approval from the DGS.

Any four courses from Tier II:
