Current decision must consider:

  • Is the course LD or UD?

  • Is the course a major req’t or in the major dept.?

  • Is the course a major req’t but not in the major?

  • Will the course apply GE, 9-unit upper division, Race & Ethnicity, and Writing Intensive req’ts?

    Solution:

    Not more than 9 units of GE credit from courses bearing the same designation as the student’s major.
