Double and Triple Counting
Can I use my GE/Capstone to fulfill multiple areas on the General Education categories?
For students admitted to the university prior to the current General Education Pattern (2012-Present):
It may be possible to use a GE course to fulfill a capstone/other general education category on the pattern. However, it may not always be to your benefit, as other categories within the GE Pattern may require more units. It is highly recommended that you meet with an advisor prior to making a change on your GE Pattern year.
For students admitted during the current General Education Pattern (2012-Present):
You are limited in terms of what may count in multiple areas/categories on the current GE Pattern. You may use courses that fulfill your Global Issues and Human Diversity to fulfill areas A-F. You are not allowed to change to a previous GE Pattern.
