ACADEMIC MAP (Effective Summer 2017 and after)

This map is a term-by-term sample course schedule. The milestones listed to the right of each term are designed to keep you on course to graduate in four years. The Sample Schedule serves as a general guideline to help you build a full schedule each term. The General Education and Elective courses must be selected to satisfy all area and multicultural requirements unless your program meets these requirements with major courses. Milestones are courses and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major. Missing milestones will result in one of two types of map registration stops. The first level (Degree Map Off-track) is placed following grade posting if the student has missed a milestone (course and/or GPA) for the first time in the major. If a student is in non-compliance with milestones for two (2) consecutive semesters (excluding summers), a Major Change Required stop is placed on the student's registration.

All new, incoming engineering students are placed into pre-engineering major until they have satisfied the College of Engineering prerequisite course requirements listed below. After these requirements are satisfied, students may change their major from pre-engineering to Civil Engineering

An undergraduate Civil Engineering degree requires 128 semester credit hours for graduation. A student who has decided to major in Civil engineering must successfully complete the following prerequisite courses before the major can be declared: a grade of "C" or better in EGN-1004L First Year Engineering Laboratory; and, a grade of "C" or better in all instances of Calculus 1, Calculus 2, General Physics I. A Student is allowed a single repeat for only one these courses. Civil Engineering majors must earn a grade of "C" or better in all engineering courses which apply toward the degree, and only a total of three repeats are allowed in all courses or a total of two in a single course.

*EGN1004L is only offered at FSU; therefore, transfer students should take this course during the first semester enrolled at FSU.

** Group A Science Elective: BSC2010 Biological Science (3) or MET2700 General Meteorology (3) or GLY2010 Physical Geology (4) or GLY1030 Environmental Issues in Geology (3) or PCB3034 General Ecology (3) or OCE4008 (3) Principles of Oceanography, recommended completion prior to declaring major.

Group D Statistics requirement: STA2122 (3) Introduction to Applied Statistics or STA3032 (3-5) Applied Statistics for Engineers and Scientists only. (STA2023 Business Statistics is *NOT* accepted).

International Opportunities: International study is available for all students and may include opportunities for internships or taking course work towards various majors and minors. International study may have an impact on the MAP; therefore, it is important to consult with the academic advisor before participating. Interested students can find information about international study, research, internships, and service opportunities at: global.fsu.edu/undergraduate-students/going-abroad.

This Map is not a contract, either expressed or implied, between the University and the student, but represents a flexible program of the current curriculum which may be altered from time to time to carry out the academic objectives of the University. The University specifically reserves the right to change, delete or add to any Map at any time within the student’s period of study at the University.
