Within your academic major or specialized curricula, UMGC's degree programs incorporate core and program-specific competencies known as general education requirements.
These requirements are for students who enroll in the 2020–2021 academic year. For prior year academic requirements, visit our catalog archive.
Any course that may be applied toward a general education requirement is considered a general education elective. Credit applied to general education requirements may not also be applied toward major, minor, or elective requirements. Courses applied to meet general education requirements may not be taken pass/fail.
No more than 3 credits in writing may be earned through credit by examination.
Must be completed within the first 24 credits. A prerequisite is required for Trigonometry and Analytical Geometry (3 Credits, MATH 108), Calculus I (4 Credits, MATH 140), and any higher-numbered MATH or STAT courses. Check individual majors for recommended math courses and related requirements.
Courses from the following disciplines may satisfy both requirements: ASTR, BIOL, CHEM, GEOL, NSCI, NUTR, or PHYS. Science courses in other disciplines may also satisfy these requirements.
