A Note on Catalog Years

General studies courses are tagged with the General Studies category designations at the time the student takes the course, so the most recent list of General Studies courses is always the best way to make sure the class will count.

A Note on Social and Behavioral Science

Beginning in the 2020-21 catalog Social and Behavioral Science has been combined into one big 6-credit category rather than the former separated SBS I and SBS II 3-credit categories.

If your catalog year is older than 2020-21, and Social and Behavioral Science I and II exist as separate categories in your Degree Progress Report, you are now welcome to take any course from the combined Social and Behavioral Science list here and they will fill in those check boxes for you, regardless of which category the course used to reside.
