Frequently asked questions

Should I take all my general education courses before taking program courses?

We recommend that you take an ASL class every semester in order to develop your sign skills, but also to avoid delaying your graduation. The ASL classes must be taken in order, one after another, and as such, several classes cannot be taken together in one semester. Each semester you do not register for an ASL course you delay your graduation by a semester. If you have to re-take a course, understand you will also delay graduation. In addition, the other department courses must be taken in order and may not be offered every semester. If you are under the requirement to take at least 12 semester hours for financial aid, plan accordingly. Otherwise, it is recommended you take the most difficult general education courses early because the program courses require increasingly additional time in homework and practice.
