General Education Structure: College Exception Guidelines

Any degree program, with the approval of its Dean, may petition the University-wide General Education Committee for an exception from some aspect of the Tier One or Tier Two requirements, if it is shown that the number of credits associated with those requirements damages either student opportunities or the educational program. Possible bases for petition include inability to meet accreditation requirements, decreased student opportunities upon completion of degree, and significant reduction in competitiveness.
