Unrestricted Elective

PHY* II is required at CCSU, ECSU, WCSU

BIO* II is required at WCSU

If you complete both sequences at the community college and transfer to WCSU, both sequences will be accepted at WCSU and you will have 4 fewer credits to complete at WCSU after transfer. If you know you are transferring to SCSU, you may decide not to use this open elective for PHY II or BIO II. Also see the additional note about open electives below.

You are free to choose any courses at or above 100-level to complete unrestricted electives, although you may need to use these credits to take courses that prepare you for required courses in the degree program. You should also consider using unrestricted electives to meet foreign language requirements at Central, Eastern and Western Connecticut State Universities or to begin work on completing a minor. CSCU does not require that you complete a minor with this major. You can also complete other General Education requirements for CCSU, SCSU, WCSU and COSC–but not ESCU. You are encouraged to meet with your advisor to determine which courses to select.

Total Program Credits: 60
