In addition, critical thinking and information management competencies are infused throughout the General Education curriculum.
An up-to-date listing of all approved General Education Courses can be found on the Current Students webpage.
In some cases, students can satisfy part of the General Education requirement based on performance on certain standardized tests. Also, courses listed in more than one General Education subject area may be used to meet the requirement for both areas--with the exception that no course used to satisfy the Humanities category may be used to satisfy any other category. Students who fulfill two requirements with one course must still take the required minimum number of General Education credits for their program: 21 credit hours for associate's degree students, and 30 credit hours for bachelor's degree students (unless a specific program waiver has been granted).
Students in Liberal Arts programs who plan to transfer to a SUNY four-year institution should complete coursework in all 10 General Education subject areas before transferring. (Students in A.A.S. programs also need to be aware of the General Education requirement if they plan to transfer to a SUNY four-year school, since students at all units of the State University are subject to the same requirement.)
Consult your academic advisor for specific details of how your program meets the SUNY General Education requirement.
