General Education Requirement Guidelines 

UAF may grant credit for courses co-sponsored by certain organizations. This policy is intended to insure that such courses meet UAF academic standards, that accurate student records are maintained, and that UAF’s administrative expenses are covered.

 If you are proposing a course that has a Math prerequisite, find the MATH courses that can be counted as equivalents in the back coding of Banner.  It is up to each department to determine if those "or" classes will actually cover the information they are looking for.
