Userform for the Actuarial Science degree

The project is not for a business but is intended to be used by the Statistics Department in counseling students who desire to major in Actuarial Science. Many students want to major in Actuarial Science and need help planning out what classes they should take and when but they cannot use MyMap which is the University provided tool for doing this because they are not yet accepted into the major. In order to be accepted into the major a student must pass the first Actuarial exam on probability theory. This exam is covered by the courses Stat 340 and Stat 370 which are well into the program. Instead students must plan on graduating in one of the other Statistics degree programs until they have passed this first exam. The userforms I have created ask a student what classes they have taken, and what major electives they plan to take and then gives them a list of classes they need to take in the coming semesters in order to give them the direction they need in completing a degree in Actuarial Science.
