Graduation requirements will vary depending on your particular circumstances. The following conditions may affect your required course work:
- Your BYU-Idaho catalog year used to determine your requirements (link to http://www.byui.edu/catalog/?cid=fli:116 )
- The total number of official credits listed on your transcripts (link to http://www.byui.edu/Documents/catalog/2013-2014/Graduation.pdf )
- The total number of transferable credits accepted from other colleges/universities based on current articulation agreements (link to http://www.byui.edu/transfer-evaluation )
- The total number of BYU-Idaho Foundations / General Education course requirements completed
*These courses have prerequisite requirements:
- The prerequisite course for NURS 338 is FDMAT, 108, 221A, 221B, or 221C. (Having FDMAT 108 waived as a University requirement does NOT waive the prerequisite to NURS 338.)
- The prerequisite courses for BIO 381 are BIO 264 & BIO 265, or BIO 461.
- The prerequisite for FDREL 200 is the completion of 24 credits.
- The prerequisite courses for FDCNC 350 are a combination of 3 Foundations courses (i.e. FDAMF 101, FDENG 201, FDSCI 101).
