The Undergraduate Calendar states the degree requirements that you will need to meet in order to graduate. If degree requirements change before you graduate, the changes will NOT affect you (they only affect students entering the program in future years).  Each year a new calendar is released. Always be sure you are viewing the calendar for the year you started your program. You may also visit LEARN Health Community Group for degree checklist and your Student Handbook.
