Double Counting Courses

"Double Counting" refers to instances when a course taken to fulfill one requirement counts simultaneously toward a requirement in another major or minor program.  Double Counting is permitted in DC on a very limited basis.  Information Systems students may double count no more than two courses used to fulfill any Information Systems major requirement (beyond Dietrich College General Education requirements and Prerequisite courses) with any combination of additional majors, minors or graduate degree programs.  Only one course may double count with any minor.  No course may count for more than one requirement within the major. Students must also adhere to any policy restrictions on double counting enforced by the academic department of the student's additional major or minor.
