Part 3. Supporting

Supporting courses are those in a subject different from that of the Plan but which are required prerequisites for upper year courses.  An example would be a first year calculus course in a Physics Plan.  Supporting courses appear in only some Plans – usually those in the Sciences, and in Economics.  Supporting courses are usually at the 100-level and are often taken in a student’s first year.  Supporting courses in one Plan which appear in the Core or Options portion of a second Plan in which a student is registered will count towards both requirements.  Thus, if you are in a Major-Minor Plan combination, you may find that some supporting course requirements listed in the calendar have been removed from your Advisement Report.
