General Education Requirements
3. Foreign LanguageNO
No credit given for Foreign Language because the requirement only applies to select degree programs.
4. U.S. Government or HistoryNO
No credit given for U.S. Government or History because the "American History or Government" requirement may be satisfied by courses narrow in scope.
No credit given for Mathematics because students may test out of the "College Algebra" requirement through SAT or ACT scores, and the "Math Reasoning Proficiency Requirement" may be satisfied by courses with little college-level math content.
