General Education Breadth Requirements are specified in the California Code of Regulations, Title 5, Section 40405. This authority is further defined in CSU Executive Order No. 1065 governing General Education. On the CSULB campus, General Education is regulated by Policy Statement 12-00.

The authority to review and approve courses for inclusion in the General Education Master Course List belongs to the General Education Governing Committee (GEGC), with final authority residing with the Curriculum and Educational Policies Council (CEPC).

Proposals for approval of specific courses for General Education credit are submitted by the College Dean or designee directly to the Chair of the General Education Governing Committee (GEGC) via the Office of Undergraduate Studies and Advising. The GEGC reviews each course proposal and recommends action to CEPC.  The CEP Council reviews GEGC’s recommendation and submits its recommendations to the Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs for final action.  Upon completion of this process, those courses approved will be placed on the General Education Master Course List.
