In this catalog you will also find descriptions for the undergraduate courses offered by the 35 acade- mic departments and schools of the University. To learn what specific courses are offered in a given semester, consult the iCampus Web site at . UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG REQUIREMENTS For a student who attends at least one term of each academic year, graduation requirements are specified in the Undergraduate Catalog for the year of entry to the University. If attendance is not continuous, a student must meet the require- ments specified in the Undergraduate Catalog in effect when he or she reenters the University. If such a student continues in the curriculum cho- sen originally, the hours earned in meeting the requirements of the original program may apply to the hour requirement of a revised program. In all instances, the University may adjust grad- uation requirements to ensure that each graduate of a teacher preparation curriculum meets the course requirements for an Illinois Teaching Certificate. A student who transfers from an Illinois public community college to this university may choose to meet graduation requirements specified in the Illinois State University Undergraduate Catalog in effect at the time the student entered the community college if (1) attendance was not inter- rupted (not including summer terms), and (2) trans- fer to Illinois State occurred within nine months of attendance at the community college. Since University programs are constantly evaluated and improved, a student may graduate under new requirements published while he or she is in attendance at the University. A student who changes to new Undergraduate Catalog requirements, however, must meet all the requirements including General Education and graduation requirements, in that catalog.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
