FDSN 506 is required unless the student has enough professional experience to allow a substitute class; the decision will be made by the FdSN program director.
Students can enroll in FDSN 594 and FDSN 597 with a maximum of 6 credit hours total between both courses with FdSN adviser approval. However, when FDSN 597 is used as a short course, the total credit hours must not exceed 8 between FDSN 594 and FDSN 597.
Students may enroll in a ChBE course that is not listed above, with FdSN adviser approval.
