General Education Courses

"Designations for General Education courses for students admitted into the university prior to Fall 2014 are those that each course had when the student was first admitted into the university. For students admitted starting Fall 2014 and thereafter, only those General Education courses that are designated in the current catalog as having a given designation will count towards that designation. For information on approved General Education courses, please refer to the undergraduate catalog.
