Name Transition: DHE → DSGN

Oregon State College of Business

 

Here is an important update for all design students: The course designator DHE will be replaces by DSGN. When looking for design courses during fall term registration, you will need to search for DSGN, in addition to DHE. DHE courses are equivalent to DSGN courses, and they will still fulfill your MyDegrees requirements. DHE will eventually be phased out, and all courses will become DSGN.
