  Guidelines​ for Planning Your Course Sequencing
The best way to plan your course sequencing is to work backwards—first figure out which courses have the most prerequisites and when they are offered, and this will be a planning constraint that you will work from.

For example, RM 790 is required for all RM students and is offered only one time per year; since most of the courses are pre or co-requisites, this course will be in your final semester in the spring. 

If you are in the Accounting concentration, note that accounting graduate courses are offered every semester, so fill in these only after you figure out which RM courses you need to take.

Although the college bulletin states that RM 701 is a prerequisite or co-requisite for all courses, sometimes this course works better after you have been in the program for a semester or two, so you need not take this course in the first semester if it otherwise makes your scheduling difficult.

Generally speaking, RM 706 is offered every semester including summer, and RM 711 and RM 705 are offered twice per year (summer/fall and fall/spring, respectively).

RM 705 and RM 706 can be taken at any point in your program, even at the end, after all courses (including RM 790) is completed. We recommend that RM 711 be taken in the first semester.

You must complete your undergraduate prerequisites in the first two semesters. You may register for certain courses while fulfilling your prerequisites.  You will not be allowed to graduate without having successfully completed the prerequisites.

It is your choice whether to go full time or part time. If you work full time, you may take no more than two classes per semester.  By full time, we mean that you are attempting to graduate in one calendar year. The international student office and financial aid have different official definitions of full time graduate work. If you need to be a full time student for visa purposes, please consult with the international student office. That office has accommodated students in this program since at times, due to how the program works, it is logistically impossible to take three courses per semester.

The table below illustrates several sequencing options. Please note that there are many other sequencing options.
