SPECIAL CATALOG NOTE

State University of New York General Education Requirement
(SUNY-GER)


All students enrolled in programs leading to A.A., A.S., and baccalaureate degrees are required by the State University of New York to complete 30 credits of SUNY-GER general education in a minimum of 7 of 10 areas. Students must take at least one course each in both Mathematics and Basic Communication and in 5 of the following 8 areas:

  1. Natural Sciences
  2. Social Sciences
  3. American History
  4. Western Civilization
  5. Other World Civilizations
  6. Humanities
  7. The Arts
  8. Foreign Language

Students who are planning to transfer to SUNY baccalaureate programs are strongly encouraged to take 3 of the 5 courses in Natural Science, Social Science, and the Humanities, as these areas are required in nearly all bachelor’s degree programs.

In addition to the 7 of 10 course requirement, students must also demonstrate the following competencies, which are infused throughout the General Education program:

  1. Critical Thinking (Reasoning)
  2. Information Management
