We realize that 12 requirements are a lot to take in all at once, so we've listed the requirements individually below. Clicking on any one of them will give you more information about satisfying that particular requirement.

English Composition (ENGL 103) Requirement

Satisfying this requirement is pretty easy. Take English Composition (ENGL 103)! Note that you may be exempted from taking ENGL 103 (and receive credit for it) if you take and achieve a sufficient score on the CLEP general examination in English Composition (with essay). A minimum grade of "C" in ENGL 103 is required in order to fulfill the English Composition Requirement.

Group A Breadth Requirement

This requirement has two parts. First of all, you must take at least 12 credits of Group A General Education courses. These courses are identified by both a GN in the course title and by one of the following five attributes in the Distribution Section after the course description: AEL, AFA, AML, APA, or APH. Secondly, in completing these 12 credits, you must take GN courses that have at least four different attributes from this list.

As an example, suppose one successfully completes a 3 credit GN course with the attribute AFA. After doing so, this student needs to take only 9 more credits in Group A, and must spread these credits over at least three of the attributes: AEL, AML, APA, and APH.

Group B Breadth Requirement

This requirement has three parts. First of all, you must take at least 12 credits of Group B General Education courses. These courses are identified by both a GN in the course title and by one of the following six attributes in the Distribution Section after the course description: BBI, BCH, BCS, BMA, BPH, or BPS. Secondly, in completing these 12 credits, you must take GN courses that have at least four different attributes from this list. Finally, one of the courses that you take must have "meeting the university math competency requirement" as a prerequisite. Courses that satisfy this last requirement are labeled with the attribute M in the Distribution section after the course description.

As an example, suppose one successfully completes a 3 credit GN course with the attribute BPH. After doing so, this student needs to take only 9 more credits in Group B, and must spread these credits over at least three of the attributes: BBI, BCH, BCH, BMA, and BPS. Since the course taken did not have the M attribute, one of the remaining courses taken in Group B must have the M attribute.
