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.
