Advice:

You are strongly advised that taking more than three science and/or math courses (possibly including labs) per semester will create a burdensome schedule/workload. Therefore, students are strongly encouraged to take courses over the summer if the course loads suggested above are a struggle.  Most courses at the 1000 and 2000 level are offered over the summer.  Individual departments can provide you with a list of courses that are offered in summer and can also help you determine if there are courses that are offered only once per year.

 

Despite what others may say, NEVER take a course without the proper prerequisites.  There is simply no sense in putting yourself at an academic disadvantage in order to meet some artificial deadline. Remember, individuals evaluating a transcript will not be impressed by mediocre grades just because you managed to pass the course without prerequisites.
