Suggestions for Selecting Courses

For the Fall 2014 semester each new first year student is required to enroll in a writing course. This class will be assigned when your advisor completes the registration process for you.

How to develop a fall course schedule:

1. You should select about 12 -15 credits of course work (remember to plan for the 3 credit writing course in your course load)

2. If you have a good idea of what you want to major in, you should select the introductory class in that major. See the list of fall courses recommended by major interest for a suggestion of what course to choose for each major offered at St. Andrews. If you indicate a major interest on the Academic Information Form, your advisor also can help you in selecting courses that will apply to that major.

Once you have chosen a course or two for your major, you should complete your fall schedule with courses that will meet some of the general graduation requirements listed below.

3. If you are like the majority of new college students and have not yet determined what you want to major in, then begin to work on the general graduation requirements that all St. Andrews students must fulfill.

General Graduation Requirements for St. Andrews Students:

  • WRT 110 and WRT 120 (you will take 110 this fall and 120 in the spring)
  • One course in Mathematics
  • One course in the Natural Sciences
  • One course in Arts and Aesthetics
  • One course in Humanities
  • One course in Social Sciences
  • Foreign Language Study (3-6 credits) .
  • SAGE 230, SAGE 240, SAGE 381,and SAGE 450 – these are taken in the sophomore, junior, and senior years.

All courses offered in the fall semester that satisfy the above requirements are indicated on the Schedule of Courses for the Fall 2014 semester. Additionally, pages at the front of the course scheduled include a list of courses to be offered this fall that satisfy each of these general education requirements.

Include on the Academic Information Form courses that look interesting to you. Select one or two which meet general graduation requirements.

You should submit this completed form electronically to St. Andrews. Your advisor will review this form, contact you for additional information as necessary and develop a preliminary fall schedule for you. You will receive this schedule electronically from the Registrar. It will be sent to your new St. Andrews email account . When you arrive on campus for orientation, your advisor will work with you to make sure your schedule is complete and appropriate.

You will also notice that some classes are listed as “Demi 1” or “Demi 2.” These are 8-week classes that occur either during the first half of the regular semester (Demi 1) or during the second half of the semester (Demi 2).

Remember that you will have an opportunity to make adjustments to your schedule once you arrive on campus. In the meantime, if you have any questions, you may contact me at (910) 277-5257 or by e-mail at mcdavids@sapc.edu.
