All SUNY Delhi students enrolled in A.A. and A.S. degree programs are required by the State University to complete coursework in 7 of 10 general education subject areas, unless a program has specifically been granted a waiver by SUNY system administration. Students enrolled in bachelor's degree programs are required to complete coursework in all 10 of the subject areas, with the same stipulation. The 10 general education subject areas are:
In addition, critical thinking and information management competencies are infused throughout the general education curriculum.
In some cases, students can satisfy part of the general education requirement based on performance on certain standardized tests. (See the General Education Courses section of the Catalog for details.) 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 minimum required number of general education credits for their program-21 credit hours for A.A. and A.S. students, and 30 credit hours for bachelor's degree students (unless a specific program waiver has been granted).
Students in A.A. and A.S. programs who plan to transfer to a SUNY four-year school are advised to try to 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.
Students should consult their academic advisors for specific details of how their program meets the SUNY general education requirement.
