All of the major requirement courses are to be taken in a sequential order or at the advisement of the department major advisor. A grade of C or higher is required for satisfactory completion of all courses. To continue in the program, a student may repeat a RADT/RADR course only one time and may repeat no more than two RADT/RADR courses while enrolled in the program.
