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. Several classes are only offered once a year.

For example, RM790 or RM791 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 spring semester.

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.

Though the college bulletin states that RM701 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, RM706 is offered every semester including summer, and RM711 and RM705 are offered twice per year (summer/fall and fall/spring, respectively). RM705 and RM706 can be taken at any point in your program, even at the end, after all courses (including RM790) is completed. RM711 should be taken by all students early in your program (unless you can show sufficient evidence of programming experience).

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 should take no more than two classes per semester. Full time students 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. 
Please speak to the Program Director for advisement on course sequencing.
