Things to Know About the New General Education Requirements (GER)

  • The new GER go into effect with the 2016-17 catalog year. If you are working on a program under an earlier catalog, you will continue to complete core requirements instead of GER.
  • If you are working on a program in the 2015-16 catalog or earlier and you are thinking about switching catalog years, please work closely with your advisor to determine if this is the best option for you.
  • The new GER are required for Associate of Arts, Associate of Science and Baccalaureate degree programs.
  • Credit may be counted toward GER or a degree major requirement, but not both.
  • The minimum grade for GER classes is C- unless the major you are in requires a higher minimum grade for GER.
  • You may take two GER designated foreign language courses in the same language or in two different languages to meet the Humanities GER and the Additional Art/Humanities/Social Sciences GER.
  • You are required to take two designated Social Sciences GER in different disciplines. If you want to use another Social Sciences class to meet the Additional Art/Humanities/Social Sciences general education requirement then you can take another class in any discipline.
  • If additional courses are added to GER in future catalog years, you may use them to fulfill specific GER in your catalog year.
