Changes to Foundations

Fall 2013 Registration - Changes to Foundations Curriculum

Beginning Fall 2013, several Foundations course changes will be implemented:

Discontinued Course Replacement Course Historied Course?
FDHUM 101 FDCA 101 (3 credits) **no
FDHUM 102  FDCA 101 (3 credits) **no
FDHUM 103 FDCA 101 (3 credits) **no
FDHUM 104 FDCA 101 (3 credits) **no
FDHUM 105 FDCA 101 (3 credits) *yes
FDHUM 106 FDCA 206 (2 credits) *yes
FDINT 201 FDCA 201 (2 credits) *yes
FDINT 202 FDCA 202 (2 credits) *yes
FDINT 203 FDCA 203 (2 credits) *yes
FDINT 205 FDCA 205 (2 credits) *yes
FDINT 199 FDCA 299 (2 credits) *yes

* Historied courses indicate a direct correlation between a discontinued course and a new version of that same course (even if they have different course codes).  Historied courses will replace the respective discontinued course (including grade and credits) on official transcripts.  Additionally, a historied course will automatically satisfy an established course requirement on a degree audit.

* * Approved course substitutions do not act as an established retaken course and will not replace a prior grade on an official transcript.  However, approved course substitutions will be allowed to satisfy the degree requirement of a discontinued course.
