FOUNDATION COURSES & PREREQUISITES
 
Undergraduate students at AUK must complete all remedial and foundation courses (MATH 095, UNIV 100, UNIV 110, ENGL 100, ENGL 101, and ENGL 102) before they register for any 300-level course and above. This rule will be enforced using Banner prerequisites. A grade of "C" or better must be earned in each of the foundation courses to pass, except MATH 095, in which a grade of "D" is acceptable.

After the student spends his/her first two years completing the general education requirements, the student will have developed the skill sets necessary to advance towards degree program or major requirements. The student generally declares his/her degree program or major after completion of the general education requirements, which normally is at the end of the second year (fourth semester). All students must declare their majors by the time they complete 60 credit hours. Students may not apply any general education credit hours toward their first major and vice versa. Students also are not allowed to double dip credit hours between categories listed under the general education requirements.
