Recurring Problems

Students should be aware of the need to take the co-requisite courses in mathematics and sciences at the earliest opportunity as background for their major. Some upper division required courses are taught once per year or once every other year. Care must be taken in planning a schedule. Students should contact the water resources major advisor at their earliest opportunity to be kept informed of any scheduling changes that could affect their program.
