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.
