Revise General Studies Requirement for Fall 2015

Crystal Davis

The university recently issued an announcement for all continuing and transferring

students. In Fall 2015, students will be granted the opportunity to complete a modified version of

the General Studies Program. The statement explained that, “The requirements of this reduced-
credit version of General Studies are detailed on General Studies Academic Planning Sheet 3-

GS. The main difference between the modified requirements and the previous requirements is a

reduction from 6-9 credits to only 6 credits in each area (A-F). The total number of credits

required for General Studies is thus reduced from 66 to 51-53 credits.” Students will now be able

to jump into the area courses for their major instead of taking the General Studies foundation
