The current policy for general education requirements is that students must take discrete courses under each requirement. The Gen Ed committee is recommending to the Academic Policies committee of the Faculty Senate that students be able to count up to six credits in two or more categories. The advantage to this recommendation is that students will free up some credits to take in other areas. Programs with strict accreditation rules have no room for any other coursework. The ability to double count would provide more flexibility for students.
