Exemptions, special permissions, and proposals need to be addressed by Professor Balmer as well.
  2. Review the requirements of the major, minor, or modified major and fill in your worksheet (see links below) and DegreeWorks major planner with your proposed course of study.
  3. Bring the completed worksheet to your meeting with Professor Balmer.
