The Career proficiencies (CL001 - 004) were developed to ensure that all students graduate with appropriate career planning knowledge and a professional resume and cover letter. Although the proficiencies are zero credit, failing any proficiency will result in an F on the student's transcript. All four proficiencies (CL001 - 004) are required for graduation, and studens may not graduate on time if any proficiency is failed or unfulfilled.

Many majors have incorporated CL004 into specific courses. In these majors, students will enroll in a required major course and are prompted to enroll in a specific section of CL004. If a student's major does not have a co-requisite CL004 section, they may sign up for a section administered by staff within the Office of Career Services. Should a student have any questions or concerns regarding registering for the appropriate section, they are encouraged to contact their academic advisor. Faculty are encouraged to contact their department chair and/or the Office of Career Services with any questions.
