**Only ONE course may be taken off-campus in each of these requirements:  Historical Studies in Western Culture (HWC), Studies in Human Behavior and Society (HBS) or Studies in Natural Science (IST, SED). 
  • The English Dept never allows visiting students to take level 4 courses in their department.  These are small classes that are reserved for our English degree seeking students only.
  • Most departments require a student to have at least 4 classes in a specific subject area to be able to enroll in a level 3 at Aberdeen.  An example would be if someone wanted to take HI3045 they would need to have had 4 other history courses to be allowed to enroll.
  • Science courses may have even further prereq's than the 4 course rule listed above.
  • Students are not allowed to take Key Learning (KL) courses.•
  • Students should consult the Aberdeen web site for an explanation of when courses are offered.

Contact the program adviser to discuss any courses which should receive GE credit.
