New general education requirements were adopted by the Academic Senate at its 2011 April 6th meeting. Students who began attending YSU before the Fall semester of 2012 have the option of meeting either the general education requirements from 2000 or the new requirements. Students who began attending YSU in the Fall semester of 2012 or later must meet the new requirements.
To see how many courses you need to take under each set of requirements use the degree audit system (choose instructions for students or instructions for advisors and faculty). If you select a catalog year and term before Fall 2012 the audit will use the 2000 requirements, if you select Fall 2012 or later it will use the 2012 requirements.
