Academic Advising

General Education Requirements


Most academic programs require particular general education courses to augment the rest of the program. Therefore, for most programs there is no need to choose among the general education courses, a student simply needs to follow the program as listed in the catalog. If the program listing requires the student to choose a general education course it will appear as:

“General Education Requirements: Mathematics 3-4 credits" please refer to the chart below. The student would choose a 3 or a 4 credit course from those suggested as long as he/she has the prerequisite for the chosen course. Course descriptions with prerequisites are listed immediately after the program curriculum in the catalog.

If the program listing says “Choose any general education course” the student can choose any course in the list below for which he/she has the prerequisite.
