Mapping Future Classes
Refer to the previous page before filling out your semester time schedule. Mark off the days and hours already committed to work and other non-school obligations. Then, note the remaining time available for your education. Keep in mind the study time and work formulas outlined on the previous page when selecting the number of classes you will take. The good news is that you can design a schedule that meets your needs. You can pick the days, time and pattern of classes that will work best for you!
Consider the following guidelines before you begin mapping out your educational plans by semester:
General requirements for certificate, degree and/or transfer.
Requirements in major.
Requirements in general education.
Course prerequisites and sequential courses.
Transferability of courses.
The Barstow College Catalog provides basic information in all these areas. Below is a six semester educa- tional plan. Take into consideration your personal time commitment to education when planning your schedule. Tailor it to meet your needs, which may mean you need more or less than six semesters to complete your goal.
