Advising reference guide: Class entering 2018

Due to the transition to semesters, several changes have been made to the General Education requirements for each class that is impacted by the transition. These changes are designed to make the transition to semesters a smooth one for students, while still making sure our Gen Ed curriculum meets standards identified by the college.

General Education sequence


Class entering 2018

FYI or HONR 101, 102, 103 (Foundations) or HONR 121, 122, 123, 124, 125, 126, or 127 (Logos) No change   Most students complete this requirement during their first year as a 3-course sequence.If you need to re-take 101 or 102 or 103 as a sophomore or above, you can substitute the semester-based 101 for the trimester-based 101, or you can substitute the semester-based 102 for either a trimester-based 102 or 103.
Second language No change   A year-long sequence of a second language is still required. The 101, 102 semester sequence is the equivalent of the 101, 102, 103 sequence under trimesters. Students can still complete this requirement via established equivalency policies.
Learning Perspectives: PA, PH, PL, PP, PN, PS   Student must complete one course in each of the 6 LP areas.
Diversity Courses (D and G) No change   You must complete one D course and one G course.  These courses will be 3 credits under trimesters and 4 credits under semesters.
Learning Community (LC)  

Learning Communities are being phased out as we transition to semesters, which may make it difficult to complete the current requirement of taking an LC-designated course by the time you graduate. To accommodate this change, the LC requirement is optional.

LCs only will be offered during your first year for this cohort, hence it is highly unlikely that you would be able to complete this requirement.

Quantitative Literacy (Q) No change   You must complete one Q course. These courses will be 3 credits under trimesters and 4 credits under semesters.
HEPE No change   Two, 1-credit HEPE activity courses are required.
