The timing of the Math course is not critical; it can be taken at a later time. Some students may place into, and wish to take, MATH 141Q.
2

The Chemistry courses can be taken later.

3

The Junior Seminar can be taken in the spring instead of the fall.

4

During the spring of third year or fourth year, you will need to take another 0.5 or 1 unit course to average 4 units per semester.
