- Each major has a set of requirements in addition to the university and college requirements. Requirements for each individual major or minor can be found in the University catalog at catalog.iastate.edu/collegescurricula/#programsmajorstext.
- Please note that some majors require specific courses to be taken that can also be used to satisfy college and/or university requirements. See Multiple-Counting below for more information.
Sometimes courses can be used to satisfy requirements at more than one of these three levels (university, college, and major-specific). This is known as multiple-counting, and the guidelines can be found on our website: http://www.cals.iastate.edu/student-services/multiple-counting-courses-cals.
