Double Dipping in GE:

No course can be used by a student to fulfill more than one general education category.

Computer and Information Literacy:

Computer and Information Literacy, which is called Information Management in the SUNY GER, is infused in each major.  If a department finds that this requirement cannot be infused into its major, the requirement can be satisfied by taking CSC 101, CSC 102, CSC 103 or any other approved course.

[Departments should submit their plans for this requirement to the General Education Council by April 2013]

General Exemptions

Students will not be exempt for a specific general education category based upon their major or minor.

Transfer Students:

Students who transfer to Oswego after completing the 30-credit SUNY-General Education Requirement (SUNY-GER, July 2010) or the equivalent of SUNY-GER at a previous institution (or institutions) are exempt from all of Oswego’s specific general education requirements.  Upon acceptance at Oswego these transfer students will have completed the General Education Requirements at Oswego.
