What happens if I take a course that duplicates a course I have already completed?

Some courses at the University are offered in more than one department. If you take a course that duplicates a course you have already completed, only one of the courses-the one most recently taken-will count toward your degree. For example, if you complete STA 309 (Elementary Business Statistics) and ECO 329 (Economic Statistics), only one may count toward your degree since these courses cover the same material. Check the Course Schedule for information about specific courses or meet with an advisor in your major department to determine whether the courses will apply toward your degree.
