** An A+ grade is to be awarded to a student who has done exceptionally outstanding work throughout the course. Such work must be consistent and nearly perfect both in terms of content and form.

  • There are two types of courses:
  • Core Courses (which are the required courses that every student must pass)
  • Elective Courses (they are supplementary courses and are not necessary to your Major or Minor, but you must at least pass 5 of them. These courses can be about anything from History to even Arts, and if you fail an Elective you are not required to repeat it, you can just take another one)
  • You can drop and change courses in the first week of the semester if you feel like said courses are not necessary to your Major or Minor, or if you feel like you are not ready yet to take some courses at your current level.
  • Our academic year is divided into 2 semesters + a summer session.
  • Some courses have certain requirements that you must meet before you can take them (like an introductory course). For example, you cannot take Principles of Management course without passing Introduction to Business course…
  • You can take up to 5-6 Classes per semester (depending on your GPA)
