Special Major Note
Comprehensive Exit Exam: All students must successfully complete the comprehensive exit exam requirement prior to graduation with the B.S. in Aeronautics. Exit exam requirements are to be satisfied by all graduation candidates no later than the eighth week of the semester of intended graduation. The exit exams shall be offered during the fourth and eighth weeks of the fall and spring semesters. Students who fail will be allowed to retake the exit exams. An overall passing grade of 70 is required. Students who transfer into the aeronautics program and receive academic credit for core areas are still responsible for taking the exam in its entirety.
