If you are prior military and have 30 hours towards your degree you can enroll in MSCI 2220.  Student who have 30 hours towards their degree and do not have prior military experience can go to camp in the summer to waive the first year requirement.  Advanced course students attend a five-week advanced camp at Fort Knox, Kentucky, normally between their junior and senior years.
