SUMMARY:
In the Requirements Block:
1. Please list all courses in Alpha/Numeric order. Please move GEOG 540, ENVE 556 .
2. Please list all cross listed courses: ENVE 532, PHL 543.
3. Please correct the Course Credit Hours: ANTH 581, AEC 550.
4. Please list all Course Titles as they appear in the Online Catalog: H 512, WRP 524, MNR 511, AEC 550.
5. ANS 585 was dropped last summer. Would you kindly remove it from the Water and Society section. Please reorganize the course into an Alpha/Number order.
6. In the Water and Society section you have the Consensus and Natural Resources course (585) listed three times. Did you want this? Listing it once and providing them with the cross listed courses is perfect.
7. MRM 515 was dropped Winter 2015, would you kindly remove this course from your list.
8. Please check the course number for Special Topics in Forest Hydrology (FE 630). Looking in the Online Catalog I could only find FE 640.

Thank you for your time.
