Twenty Earned Course Credits Outside the Major Requirement
Students must complete 20 earned course credits outside the core and distribution requirements of their major. When a course is used to satisfy both a General Education requirement and a major requirement, the credit is counted only one time, and in the major discipline. Collateral courses are included in the 20 credits outside the major.
If a collateral course or a substitution for a collateral course is within the major rubric, it does not count in the 20 credits outside the major.
Collateral courses are included in the major's GPA calculation. Cross-listed courses may be counted as being outside the major if the course does not count toward any requirement for that major—including collateral courses—and if it is taken under the non-major rubric.
