GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS (LEP) AND WRITING REQUIREMENTS

Liberal Education Program

Students must complete a comprehensive three-tiered Liberal Education Program (LEP). View all requirements of the tiers on the Liberal Education Program.  

While the choice of courses that fulfill the requirements is generally left up to students, courses in the major and/or cognate may also satisfy LEP requirements.  These shared courses are recommended below to fulfill both areas, although the course credits are only counted once towards the 120 credits required for graduation.

Tier 1 - Quantitative Reasoning:  
MAT 107 – Elementary Statistics

Tier 2 - Mind and Body:
PSY 100 - Introduction to Psychology

Tier 2 – Natural World I: Physical Realm:
CHE 120 – General Chemistry I

Tier 2 - Natural World II: Life and Environment:
BIO 200 - Human Biology I 

Writing Requirements (“W-Courses”)

Three W-courses are required. These may not be taken until after a student has passed ENG 112 — Writing Arguments. W-courses may count toward LEP, major, or cognate requirements, as well as free electives. Course sections that meet this requirement are designated by section numbers ending in “W”.  

Transfer students who enter with 60 to 89 credits are required to pass two W-courses, while transfer students who enter with 90 credits or more must pass one W-course.
