Typical Fall Quarter Schedules by College
College of Arts & Sciences
Most students who have been accepted into
a major within the College of Arts & Sciences will take 3 Core
courses OR 2 Core courses and a modern language class in Fall Quarter.
All students with a major in the College of Arts and Sciences
must demonstrate competency through the level of one full year of study
in a language other than English. This competency is ordinarily achieved
by the successful completion of the three-course sequence or
successfully placing into a year two language course through the modern
language placement test. The three course sequence is offered over one
year: 1150 quarter in fall quarter, 1250 in winter quarter and 1350 in
spring quarter. Students who indicate interest in a language which they
have studied at least 2 years in high school are not placed into a
language class until after they take the placement exam. Students are
not required to take the modern language sequence in year 1. Many
students complete the sequence in their 2nd year.
Albers School of Business & Economics
Most students who have been accepted into
a major within the Albers School of Business & Economics will take 2
Core courses, BUAD 1000, and a math course in Fall Quarter.
with a major in the Albers School of Business & Economics are
required to complete Math 1130, Calculus for Business or MATH 1334. MATH
1130 has a prerequisite of MATH 1120, Precalculus for Business and MATH
1020, College Algebra.
Your SAT, ACT, Running Start or college level
credit will place
you into one of these three classes. If you place
into MATH 1020 or 1120 you will see that course along with 2 Core courses
on your fall schedule. Students placing in MATH 1130 may or may not see
it on their schedule depending on availability. You should take MATH
1130 in winter quarter if you have not been scheduled for it in the Fall
and meet the prerequisites. Students with Running Start or college
credit for MATH 1130 have satisfied their Math requirement. Students may
discuss MATH 1334 as an option with an adviser at Summer in Seattle.
College of Science & Engineering
Majors in Science & Engineering
require students to start major requirements in fall quarter. For this
reason it is difficult to outline a “typical” schedule, but we will do
our best to show some rough guidelines. Your schedule may look
different, but an adviser at Summer in Seattle will explain any
- Chemistry and Biochemistry Majors: Students typically take a math course, chemistry course and Core course.
- Biology Majors: Students typically take 2 science courses and a math or Core course.
- Engineering Majors:
Students studying Mechanical, Civil and Environmental and Electrical
and Computer Engineering typically take a math course, Intro to
Engineering course(s) and a Core course.
- Math, Computer Science, Physics and Diagnostic Ultrasound: Students studying within these majors typically take a math course and 2 Core courses.
College of Nursing
Most students who have been accepted into the College of Nursing will take 2 Core courses and a math course.
majors are typically placed into MATH 1120, College Algebra. Students
who have Running Start or college level credit for math have satisfied
their math requirement. Students with higher SAT/ACT scores will be
placed into MATH 1120 or MATH 1321.
Students who are undecided about their
major, or do not yet meet the requirements of their desired major, are
“premajors”. On the preference form you will be asked what major(s) you
intend to declare or are interested in exploring. This answer will
determine how we register you for fall quarter.
indicating an interest in Arts and Sciences or who are generally
undecided, typically are registered for 3 Core courses. Students with
interest in Business, Science & Engineering or Nursing will
typically be registered for 2 Core courses and math.
