Additional Information and Notes


 

        Students may choose to use support courses to satisfy general education categories, but may not be required to do so.  Note:  If a course is used to satisfy two or more requirements (for example, a support course and Scientific Reasoning requirement), the credits are counted in only one place.  Using a course to satisfy more than one requirement does not reduce the credit total required for graduation.  

        Courses used to satisfy the general education requirements of the university must be taken from a minimum of six different academic disciplines.  First Year Seminar and Level I Written Communications courses are exempt from this restriction.  Courses may not be used to fulfill both major discipline and general education requirements.

#         These Scientific Reasoning General Education Category courses do not have to be a sequence or be from the same discipline.

         Level II and Level III Written Communications Courses may be used to satisfy requirements anywhere else in a student’s program of study where they may apply.  The credits are counted only in one area.
