Additional General Education Information

  • Waiver Criteria: Some requirements may be waived or modified based upon high school work and standardized tests.  Waiver information is located at the following link: SUNY General Education Requirement Waiver Criteria
  • Courses That Count In More Than One Area:  Several courses can count in two areas. For example, ART137 meets both the Arts and the Western Civilization requirements. If a student takes a course that meets two requirements, he or she must still complete 30 credits of SUNY-GER.
  • Differences between SUNY GER and SUNY Niagara Curriculum Requirements:  Some courses fulfill SUNY GER requirements but do not fulfill SUNY Niagara curriculum requirements in the same category. For example, ANT 230 fulfills the Natural Science requirement for SUNY-GER but does not fulfill the science requirement of many programs. Some anthropology, art, music, and theater courses fulfill the Western Civilization requirement for SUNY-GER but only courses with the prefix HIS fulfill the history requirement of many programs. Students needing clarification should consult with their advisor.
